The Winding Road sign is an example of a general warning sign. Such warning signs are usually diamond-shaped and have a yellow background.

Why is Learning Road Sign Shapes and Colors Important?

The reason you should know road sign shapes and colors is that you must be able to recognize them from a distance and react to their message in time and appropriately.

During winter, road signs might be covered with snow or ice, and hard to read. If you approach an eight-sided and red road sign you know you must come to complete stop, even if you cannot see the word stop.
