Well, regarding this topic I think, we should distinguish
  1. "Welcome to" signs and
  2. Traffic signs which determines the general speed limit

According my experience, in some countries it is the same, while in others there is a difference between.

But in my honest opinion, this is something what should be unified.

Officiall village, city and town entrance signs usually marks the beginning of built up area speedlimits, without actually placing speedlimit signs.

Its interesting that somewhere they put a speed sign together with the entrance sing although its not necessary

Having found an old 60´ traffic rules book from Czechoslovakia, I have noticed some interesting no longer valid traffic rules:
  1. If there was a speed limit sign attached on the same pole as city/settlement entering sign, the displayed speed limit was meaned as general speed limit entirely for the municipality. Currently, the speed limit sign is valid only to the next intersection.
  2. From 22.00 to 6.00 the general speed limits in built-up areas were changed to same speed limits as for uninhabited areas (e.g. 90 km/h in cities). But this might be really dangerous regarding current traffic density.

An example of Italian sign:



"Bandiera Blu" (Blue Flag) is something that is given to cities in which the sea is very good and absolutely unpolluted. This sign is here: http://goo.gl/maps/SrWOA

Another one, old, that is not official:




And finally a curiosity: Rome sign is put everywhere, except on the real municipality borders. One, for example, is here:



Located just outside of A24 motorway that brings inside the city. But we are something like 10/12 km inside the municipality borders!


http://goo.gl/maps/cRdN3 : if you look at the map, you can see clearly that almost 50% of Rome is before that sign.

Yes. Motorways never fall under built up areas, no matter how deep inside...

I'm about to spit over my own nest, but Slovak system is kind of b......t.

It was only few years ago since the first motorway through city was opened in Bratislava (2002). First, the National motorway company decided to keep the speed limit 130 kph on that motorway, whereas every exit in city was marked by motorway-end and city-entrance sign.

But then they have introduced the following crap: Along with common three types of general speed limit in case of most countries (motorways, unihabited areas, inhabited areas), fourth has been created (motorway in inhabited areas)!

The speed limit for motorways within inhabited areas is 90 kph, but is barely noted on some border crossings:


Moreover, on some of them is still missing.

Then the information sign is installed just few metres before you enter the city. But it can easily remain unnoticed (e.g. if you overtakes a truck with trailer):



And this is the motorway entrance to city


Yeah, the important city-entrance sign, which changes the speed limit is the one with white background just above the motorway sign. Legible as hell especially for foreign drivers.

The entire section of motorway in Bratislava is equiped by panels with changeable traffic signs. Therefore you might expect displaying the speed limit 90 kmh on each of them.

But the pannels were installed together with the motorway construction. Since they first determined the speed limit to 130 kph, the pannels are able to show only speed limits 40,60,80,100,130 so LOOOOOOL F.you, it displays nothing but green arrow


Lot of foreigners usually exceeds the speed limit on that motorway, but I totally understand why. Obviously, the police like to measure and catch them. If you exceed the speed limit over 40 kmh (you drove 130 kph and had to drive 90 kph), the fine is tasty 360 Eu. Welcome to Slovakia and have a nice day.


Once I have proposed that on one forum:
http://i37.************/99far7.jpg

It might clarify the unclear situation either for domestic or foreign drivers. But I think, the police likes and appreciates the current state more.

(the green sign in the back with a speed limit of 80 km/h)

Yeah, despite of lacking changeable traffic sings, I really appreciate speed limit sign (80 kph) repeated regularly. It is clear for all drivers

We used to have some unofficial blue signs on urban expressways, but they were put quite randomly. Here is an example from the G2-104 expressway entering Ljubljana:



The H3 through northern Ljubljana didn't have these signs, neither did the H2 through Maribor, but there was such a sign on the H5 entering Koper. Now it's a bit funny; you drive on the H5 and H6 and when you're almost out of Koper already, the H6 expressway ends and there's a yellow sign for Koper and 1 km later the end of it.

I've experienced that many times in Hungary. There were white signs, blue signs, even green signs. It is really confusing.

Planners often confuse communal boundaries with boundaries of built-up areas in Slovakia too and place the city-entrance sign on communal borders. It is obviously a crap, because in Slovakia (and I bet in most of other countries so far) every place belong to any municipality.
