Cody recently informed me that stop signs used to be YELLOW and were changed to the familiar red somewhere in the 1950's.
I don't usually fact check the boy because he's almost always right - it's just a waste of time. We just assume he's right and move on. Something about his statement piqued my interest, though, so I Googled it.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand he was right.
Take a look: The change was made in 1954 according to THIS website.
And just for fun, here's a peek at what stop signs look like around the world.
Thanks for STOPPING by...happy writing!
