Only been driving since 1982 or so. The "Yield" signs have always been red and white.

Triangle shape at intersections.


Confusing for many drivers. I was a driving instructor in 1986.

Nobody understands what they mean anyway.

But I have been in about 40/50 states and lived in the Northeast, Midwest and Northwest.

Yellow like all advisory signs, warnings and commands are red.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69313158


yield is NOT an advisory sign, it is a command

it is telling you to stop if there is traffic present in the intersecting roadway

which is probably why they changed it from yellow to red years ago

if you do not follow the command, you will get in a crash

So let me get this straight:

You have 'ONLY' been driving for 37 years ...
Yet you never seen a yellow yield sign!

Is this correct?

people don't get too freaked out over this

yield signs have become less and less common than they used to be

they are not very safe because if there is perpendicular traffic that is NOT stopping for you, it is better to just stop every time

similarly, are less two-way stop intersections

4-way is much safer,

agreed- they are confusing and lead to tentative behaviour rather then an affirmative reaction to a command

in order to yield, you have to stop and pause to see if traffic is coming

so you might as well just put a stop sign there and avoid the confusion and potential serious accidents

this phenomenon is not nearly so mind blowing as this guy is making it out to be

there are much fewer yield signs out there because they have been replacing them with 2-way stop signs for safety reasons

so most of the yeild signs that you saw when you were driving probably were yellow, and that's the first thing that comes to mind

So another poster asked if I have never seen a "yellow" yield sign.

Maybe in a poorly-signed construction site or some Ohio mall, but never on a highway.

Anyway, driving students don't understand them and neither do most licensed drivers of various ages and experience.

To me, driving at the Speed limit on the freeway, a "yield" sign tells me "idiots merging now without considering traffic patterns".

That is the Reality.

Apologize for the double post. I rarely make a post here.

If the others see yellow "yield" signs that is fine.

Personally I never see them. But, I find them to be ineffective due to lack of driver education.

People merge onto freeway lanes without right of way when they see a "yield" sign.

the old yellow background with black letters are much easier to see the word “yield” than the red letters on a white background- dumb

I thought it was yellow too. I was born in 1975. I think I still saw these when I was a kid. Since you don't see these as much as other signs you probably never noticed that it has changed. You just see the words.

When I was growing up taking drivers ed in 1994 I was taught the color warnings Red meant stop. Yellow and orange meant yield. We had to identify signs by both their color and by the shape. All signs conformed to these rules. Even traffic lights

You see orange yield signs on farm equipment yellow for road signs

I pass a yield sign everyday on Talking Rocks Road (the ozarks) and it is YELLOW.
