Quaint Road Works

Yellow road sign in M6 contraflow: Free Recovery. Await Rescue.

When did you ever hear anyone use the word "await" in spoken English. How did it find its way on to a road sign, especially those yellow ones with black lettering they use in road works?

Await... shorter than wait for, fewer letters, cheaper.
