A divided highway sign is a common occurrence, but it can be difficult to see if the signs are correctly positioned.
A highway patrol officer may be unable to see the signs clearly if they are located at a lower angle than the highway.
The divided highway signs are located on highway 70 near Lake Conway, Alabama.
It’s a rural road, so you might think that there are fewer signs than on other rural roads.
But this is not the case.
The road is not divided into smaller roads or divided into lanes, so the signs do not need to be positioned exactly at that angle.
However, the split highway sign can be tricky to read.
Here’s how to make sure you are getting the right angle.
First, read the road ahead.
Look at the sign and then look behind it.
If you can’t see the road, the sign is probably wrong.
If it’s too far ahead, the road may be too steep or that it’s not straight.
If the road is too steep, the signs should not be positioned at all.
Next, use your compass to check the road.
If your road is clearly defined, there should be no signs at all in the direction that you are facing.
If there are signs, then you are likely on the correct road.

To determine if the split signs are correct, look at the directions that the sign indicates.
If they indicate straight ahead, they should be located just behind the highway and should be placed just beyond the highway sign.
If signs indicate uphill, then they should also be placed at a level with the highway’s edge.
If these directions are not followed, you may be in trouble.
The directions are simple.
You see the highway as a single, unified road.
This means that you need to position the divided highway signage at a higher angle than on the other roads in the road and follow the directions to get the right orientation.
There are three primary directions for split highway signage.
The first direction is the direction from the highway onto the highway side.
This is called the left-hand direction.
The other directions are the direction toward the highway or the direction away from the roadway.
These directions are called the right-hand directions.
The left- and right-handed directions should be followed in the same direction, as well.
The second direction is a right-turn direction.
This direction is always perpendicular to the highway from the left and the right.
This indicates the direction to the left of the highway, and the direction for the right to the right of the roadway in the opposite direction.
Here are the directions for the two left-handed signs.
The signs on the left indicate the direction you should turn onto the right lane and the sign on the right indicates the left lane.
The sign on top of the road indicates the right direction.
When a divided highway has one left-turn sign, it indicates the traffic will turn onto either the right or the left lanes.
When the highway has two right- and two left in one direction, it means the traffic is headed in the other direction.
In the case of divided highways with one right-and-two left signs, the traffic should be headed in one of the two lanes.
The third direction is to the direction opposite to the main highway, which is indicated by the road’s edge or the highway bridge.
This signals that traffic should turn to the other side of the main street, so that traffic will flow through the divided lane.
Here is the directions of the split left- turn and right turn signs on a rural Alabama highway.
Notice that the directions are very clear, with only a couple of minor variations.
In order to read these signs correctly, you should first read the directions carefully and then check to make certain that they are correct.
Check the directions from the right and from the direction of the highways edge to make the correct orientation.
Check to make all of the signs appear to be pointing in the correct direction, even if there are some slight differences in orientation.
For example, the direction indicated on the split sign for the highway you are heading onto is probably not the right one.
This could be because of a hill or some other obstacle.
Another common problem with the directions is that the direction does not always point straight ahead.
Sometimes the direction is just slightly off, as if it were pointing in another direction.
To make sure that the signs pointing in both directions are pointing in exactly the same way, check the direction on the highway itself.
If a split highway has both directions, the directions will be the same.
To check the directions on the road before you take the road into town, check for signs that tell you where to go to meet traffic, or the road will probably have no signs.
Keep in mind that some road signs can be on or off the highway at different times
