You'd still need direction.  Give ways such as on pretty much any
midwestern left-handed entrance ramp still put the YIELD sign on the right
of the ramp, turned slightly towards the road for which it applies.  Since
the main roadway has more shoulder than the ramp, the sign at left
entrances tends to be substantially closer to the motorway, which has the
right of way and doesn't yield.
