History:
The use of road signs in the United States dates back to the early 20th century when the country began experiencing significant growth in automobile ownership and road infrastructure. As people explored rural areas and countryside landscapes, it became essential to implement road signs that warned of specific conditions and hazards unique to these regions.

Countryside road signs, such as cattle warnings, were introduced to alert drivers to potential encounters with wildlife. Tractor crossings and rough road indicators were essential for agricultural areas where farm machinery frequently crossed roads or where the road conditions could be challenging.

The diamond-shaped sign design, commonly used for warning and cautionary signs, gained popularity due to its visibility and ability to quickly convey important information to drivers. Over the years, the range of countryside road signs expanded to address various rural conditions, ensuring safer travel in these scenic areas.
