The Surprising History Of The Stop Sign: It Used To Be Yellow

When it comes to road signs, It is an indisputable fact that the color red symbolizes stop. From the most commonly seen red traffic lights to those regulatory signs, generally related to anger, hostility, and urgency, red itself can deliver the message of stopping immediately. It attracts drivers' attention and gives them proper warnings. However, what you may not know is that red stop signs have only been regarded as the standard for about decades. Before that, this octagonal road sign was designed to be yellow, with the word STOP in black on it. It was not until 1954 did the stop sign become red with white letters, the sign that we know so well today.
