MUTCD Marker symbols

Are there marker symbols available for all the MUTCD codes? I'm looking for one that says "Drug Free School Zone". Where can I find a font with this symbol?

Mapping Center Answer:

We have a majority of the warning, regulatory, guide, and pedestrian signal signs from the MUTCD code included in the ArcGIS Transportation style. Unfortunately, the one you're searching for was not listed at the time of design, so it was not included -- but a good item to bring to our attention. 

Where you might look for fonts is sites that have FHWA Clearview Series fonts. These contain the 2003 Edition of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the 2004 MUTCD Standard Highway Signs Manual (SHS), the FHWA 2000EX Expanded Edition font collection is available in TrueType, PostScript and OpenType formats.

You could also take a look at a local D.A.R.E. program, they may have someone in your community that could help with the actual sign placement.
