I suspect this is a big factor as to why there's basically just that one.

Depends on the area, I suspect.  In Oklahoma, there's typically flap-out
signs on a timer, unfurling when the restriction is in effect, and folding
back up when the restriction ends (often with the conditions for the
restriction also on the sign).  So even if the sign is open for some other
reason (like a power failure, since they fail open), people often ignore
the conditions and treat the restriction as if it's in effect.
