What Do You Want in the new MOTS?

The background work on the R3 series signs (new graphics, coding, etc.) is coming along slowly, but I thought I’d ask some questions in the meantime:

  1. What current features of the Manual do you use or value the most?
  2. What new features would you like to see added?*
  3. What current feature do you use or like the least?
  4. Looking at the new pages (About, Object Markers, Regulatory, R1, R2), do you like or dislike the new layout, and do you have any suggestions?*
  5. Anything else in the way of suggestions or comments?

Feel free to leave your responses in the comments. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

*can’t promise I can implement all requests, but at least I’ll be aware of them…

    Hi, I’m a long-time reader of your site, and I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful resource. I don’t have any professional ties to the world of traffic engineering, but your site has always been informative and incredible.

    I think one interesting feature would be a place where users can upload pictures of more “exotic” signs that you might not see on a day-to-day basis, such as R13-1 ALL TRUCKS COMMERICAL VEHICLES NEXT RIGHT or M1-2 INTERSTATE BUSINESS LOOP. It’d be cool to see where these exotic signs turn up!

    • There have been some ideas for providing a place to host and make available user-supplied content. Once something comes together, we’ll let everyone know.

        Awesome sounds good.

      Perhaps custom state specific signs? I would be happy to upload all of Vermont’s

      • Apologies for not replying earlier. I think in this update I’ll actually be moving away from state-specific signs, including Arizona’s. With all the work in just adding all the new MUTCD signs and revamping all the old signs, there’s enough to keep me busy for a long time…
