(Pic) Take Turns: The Half Stop, Half Yield Sign

In an effort to encourage more rational and logical behavior at traffic intersections, inventor Gary Lauder has designed a new kind of street sign.

In an effort to encourage more rational and logical behavior at traffic intersections, inventor Gary Lauder has designed a new kind of street sign.

A cross between a stop sign and a yelled sign, Lauder’s creation offers three options to drivers who encounter it.

The TED blog explains:

Here’s the street sign the world needs now. Half a stop and half a yield, the sign gives each driver a clear indication of how to behave. Below the red “Take Turns” shield is a small sign reading, “If Cars Are Waiting, Please Stop and Alternate.” And if there are no cars waiting, just blow on through. (No more stopping at red lights at 4am, on a country road, when there’s no one around for miles.)
