What’s That Sign? I was riding along quiet state route 26 in far southern Sussex County, Delaware, when something caught my eye at the right side of the road, prompting me to pull to the roadside and make a U-turn.

The basic shape is that of a laterally flattened diamond with angled points at the top and bottom; and rounded points on the left and right. Just below the top point of the diamond is a hori-

The perimeter of the diamond is decorated with yellow/gold circles as though to mimic a string of neon lights
