The shoulders in my part of the world (Tampa/St.Pete), are also known as turning lanes.
Most streets with heavy commercial activity, hence traffic, and therefore house sellers, use the shoulders as turn-offs for the many stores which are at the sides of the road.
These are the only streets worth putting up signs. There are roads with wide shoulders but why would anyone (I’m sure some do) put up signs where people will just whiz by them at 60mph?
Signs are at their most logical use when thay are at the corners of busy streets. People are stopped for 30 seconds at the light and perhaps they will read and remember my 222-HANK number.
For you to get out of your car (do you scoot over to the passenger door like you’re supposed to?) during the middle of the heavly traveled day is dangerous to yourself and others around you.
And I don’t spend time “composing” my messages. I type as I think, which is conversational in style.
