Investigation of Warning Signs for Median Crossovers
This article describes the results of a study of advanced warning median crossover signs that were tested in a laboratory for legibility, understanding, recognition, and preference. The study indicated that the most appropriate word message sign would be MEDIAN CROSSOVER. Such a sign was not actually tested but the subjects understood a MEDIAN OPENING sign the best, and the majority of subjects thought that 'crossover' was the word that best conveyed the intended meaning. Legibility of the symbolic signs, however, was much greater than for the word messages.
