History of the puzzle edit

First appeared on WPC 2015/Round 4. Author of the puzzle was Kazunori Saitoh (Japan).

He based this genre on his earlier puzzle named "右左折直進メイズ" (directly translated as "Right Turn, Left Turn, Straight Maze"). As the name suggests, clues in that puzzle restricted behaviour of the loop to only one type. Traffic Sign Maze is a direct generalisation of the original.
