Example Use:

On a stretch of highway in rural Nebraska, drivers often encounter a sign indicating 'Soft Shoulder.' This sign is crucial, especially for unfamiliar drivers. Consider Jennifer, a traveler on a road trip, cruising at 65 mph. She spots a beautiful sunset to her right and contemplates pulling over to capture the moment with her camera. Seeing the 'Soft Shoulder' sign, she's reminded that the road's shoulder may not support the weight of her SUV, and there's a risk of getting stuck or, worse, tipping her vehicle. This immediate visual warning prevents Jennifer from making a hasty and potentially dangerous decision, ensuring she only pulls over where it's safe to do so. The sign serves as a practical reminder of the differing conditions between the main road and its edge, helping drivers avoid unforeseen troubles.
