Burma Shave signs were also along U.S 27 between Lake Okeechobee and Sebring in the 50s.
The Florida Turmpike had Burma-Shave style safety announcements for a while in the late 70s and early 80s, for example:
He Who Drives
When He's Been Drinking
Depends On You
To Do His Thinking
Don't Lose Your Head
To Gain a Minute
You Need Your Head
Your Brains Are In It
They should bring those back.
You didn't see these so much in Florida, but I bet lots of us saw them on the way to the mountains in NC every summer! There were also some signs painted on the tops of barns, starting in South Georgia.
