"Any traffic control device design or application provision contained in this Manual shall be considered to be in the public domain. Traffic control devices contained in this Manual shall not be protected by a patent, trademark, or copyright, except for the Interstate Shield and any other items owned by FHWA."

This subpage of Commons:Licensing attempts to further clarify the specific licensing of road signs that are based from the Federal Highway Administration's Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. As stated in the introduction, all images, except for the Interstate shield and any other items owned by the FHWA, are hereby released into the public domain, and should be tagged {{PD-USGov-MUTCD}} when applicable.
