Proper Color of Attractions signs

Location: Throughout the state.

Current Sign: As suggested, however the majority of signs are white-on-green, instead of white-on-brown. In the Adirondack Park and Catskill Park, they are yellow-on-brown, like the normally white-on-green signs are.

To make the roads of New York State more tourist friendly, white-on-brown signs should be used to indicate tourist attractions, recreational areas, etc. NYSDOT Region 2 currently does this (which I applaud) and the other regions in the state should follow their lead. This is the practice in most of the United States and aids touring motorists in identifying recreational locations.
