Question on road signs -- HC?

    I've no clue how to Google this, and I'm tired from driving for about 10 days, so I'll just ask here...

    On a road sign, what does it mean when there's a black "HC" with a green circle around it? I've been driving for awhile and seen that designation on a couple of highways, including the HOV lane in ... um ... I think maybe it was Salt Lake City.

    All I can come up with is "Horseless Carriage," and I'm fairly certain that's not right. So what the heck does it mean?

    No hazardous containers.

    It actually indicates that it IS a hazardous container route. Trucks carrying hazardous material have to follow that route.

    I thought a question was being posed for the consideration of our favourite anthem singer. :)

    Me, too, DoubleJ. I wondered why anyone would be asking HC about road signs in Utah.

    They obviously aren't Battalion fans...

    Saw these in Boston with an arrow pointing in the direction of our hotel. Thought they were very welcoming!

    Did you rip off one of those to give to JR to make sure he doesn't forget you?

    Good to see my alma mater expanding its brand recognition. Cousy, Heinsohn and Lockbaum would be proud.

    I don't what purpose questions on road signs would serve. Road signs should be used only to relay important information to drivers.
