If print usage and signage were consistent even between cities in the 
same state, I'd tend to agree.  Given that what areas abbreviate which 
words and what abbreviation they use for it, I'd say trying to find 
abbreviations everyone can agree on for this is entirely futile to the 
point of not even being worth trying.
