Probably because businesses don't want to pay for the exit tab.

New York and South Carolina have exit tabs that, by SkyPesos' classification, could be a category "Attached exit tabs, square bottom corners and rounded top corners, share bottom border with main panel, tab offset from the edge of the main panel (with a rounded border corner on the main panel):"

- New York (Sign actually has rounded corners) https://goo.gl/maps/pM8qrmS5SdQ1jMzu5
- South Carolina (Sign corners are not round and extend outside border) https://goo.gl/maps/QgpG5B48YsQzn6Zf8
Both are kind of ugly imo but it's whatever. Offset exit tabs are okay. Don't know what the advantage of using them is! But if I say that one of them is better, I guess I'll give it to SC.

NCDOT did try using rounded exit tabs like this, but found them to be ugly and childish, so they went back to the square type of exit tabs. Btw that was practiced in the early 2010s.
