You will often find similar lines used where aircraft are used to monitor speed.
Never argue with idiots. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Also, Kraake, I noticed in your Alaska examples, there are no exit tabs on those signs. Since none of the exits on the very few freeways that Alaska has are numbered, there is no reason for Alaska to use exit tabs because exit tabs simply give the number and/or letters of the exit.
I've noticed that. That makes sense. Alaska & Hawaii are kind of speciality in that list anyway.


Regarding to the Exit tabs, I've included all different kinds, I guess. Image

New EXIT tabs overview through the US created. You can have a look :arrow: HERE.

Let me know in case I forgot, missed or overlooked something.

Cheers!

I have would like to call attention to one "additional tab".

Example 1
Example 2

"HC" means "Hazardous Cargo". Those signs are best buddies with this sign. It means exactly what you would expect: vehicles carrying "hazardous cargo" must follow roads with a green, encircled "HC", and may not proceed onto roads with a red, encircled-and-crossed "HC." Functionally, this exists to prohibit such cargoes from entering city centers. Some places use HM instead of HC. I confess that I do not know what the difference is; perhaps HM is simply a newer standard that will take ages to roll out.

Regardless, one potentially interesting gameplay idea might be the addition of these "bypass routes" that in turn force players driving Hazardous Cargo onto slightly longer paths (or else they will be fined). As these jobs typically pay more and allegedly require extra skills, this might actually be a neat form of 'balance'.

Thank you for the information.

I was checking the difference between "HM" & "HC" last week and haven't found any info.

HM means Hazardous Materials. Sometimes HAZMAT is used.

On the topic of hazardous material signs, some tunnels and bridges do not allow hazardous materials or oversize loads, so there are often signs like this telling trucks that hauling anything other than a normal trailer to exit.

Here's something unique, I-87 in New York has "Sortie" on their exit tabs since that is the main highway leading to/coming from Montreal/Quebec. Both north and southbound exits use these tabs.

Some of the sign destinations have both French and English

This one appears to be the southernmost bilingual exit tabbed sign
