Interesting about stop signs...
The first stop signs were posted in Michigan and Nebraska in 1915, says Brown University Originally, they were square-shaped, measuring 2 feet by 2 feet and featured black letters on a white background, according to Jalopnik. These plain signs may have been adequate at first since there weren’t many cars on the road, but by the 1920s, the number of cars on the road began to increase. The U.S. then standardized all stop signs to the octagonal shape that we still see today.
The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) saw a few key advantages to giving the stop sign its unique shape. First, the octagonal shape makes it easy for drivers traveling in the opposite direction to recognize the sign from the back, which helps prevent confusion at intersections, according to Reader’s Digest. Second, since the original stop signs weren’t reflective, the AASHO needed a design that could be easily recognizable at night.
