English: 24 by 24 in (600 by 600 mm) sign, made to the specifications of the 2009 edition of Standard Highway Signs (sign {{{mutcd}}}). Uses the Roadgeek 2005 fonts. (United States law does not permit the copyrighting of typeface designs, and the fonts are meant to be copies of a U.S. Government-produced work anyway.) Colors are from [1], converted to RGB by [2]. The outside border has a width of 1 (1 mm) and a color of black so it shows up; in reality, signs have no outside border.
