    Distribute a more comprehensive traffic symbology set than is found in the ESRI transportation font.

    In the USA every state relys on some form of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for their traffic sign symbology.  These include local, county, and state governments.  All of these agencies are under a federal mandate to generate inventories of their signs, obviously GIS is the most effective means to achieve this ( http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/roadway_dept/night_visib/retrotoolkit/pdfs/AB08H243-2Ellison.pdf). 

    There is this post inquiring about this very topic: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/17735-Manual-on-Uniform-Traffic-Control-Devices-(MUTCD)?highlight=mutcd  and there is this post which is offering ESRI a MUTCD symbology set for distrubution: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/42474-Where-and-how-to-share-EMF-files

    It would be great if Esri would acknowledge this need and maybe go a few steps further and: 

    Provide state MUTCD symbols, e.g. MUTCD(CA)

    Provided FHWA type faces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FHWA_Series_fonts

    Provide MUTCD standard road pavement marking symbols and line types
