THE EFFECTS OF UNDERLINING ON THE READABILITY OF HIGHWAY DESTINATION SIGNS

ON THE BASIS OF AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT UNDERLINING WOULD REDUCE THE PROBABILITY OF ASSOCIATING A DESTINATION WITH THE WRONG ARROW IN UNEQUAL-WORD-LENGTH SIGNS. UNDERLINING WOULD NOT, HOWEVER, REDUCE THIS PROBABILITY FOR EQUAL-WORD-LENGTH SIGNS, EVEN THOUGH SUCH SIGNS ARE MORE FREQUENTLY MISREAD.
