SIGN RECOGNITION TEST RESULTS "DISAPPOINTING"

The State Department of Transportation in Wisconsin conducted a test of motorists' ability to recognize the new highway signs using pictures to convey messages as opposed to the conventional word signs. The test results were disappointing in that the number wrong indicated that motorists are not adapting as readily as had been expected to the new international signs. The Division of Highways and Motor Vehicles has taken this to mean that a mandatory re-testing program of drivers should be implemented, and that a longer transition period is needed before removing the words that accompany the pictures on the new signs.
