Thats because dual carriageways in Kosovo fall under the category of " Rrugë Nacionale " which also applies to national roads which are single carriageways. All regional and national roads in Kosovo are blue where as motorways are green. I think it would be better to have an expressway sign with the 100km which is currently used on the Prishtinë - Pejë and Prishtine - Mitrovice dual carriageways.

Prishtinë-Mitrovicë Dual Carriageway (100kmph) - Blue Background Signs



Prishtinë - Pejë Dual Carriageway (100kmh) - Blue Background Signs


R7 Motorway (130kmh) - Green Background Signs

I read it as mandatory lights outside urban areas + wear your seatbelt.

Does this mean that wearing seat-belts (especially on rear seats) in urban areas isn't mandatory

AFAIK wearing seatbelts is mandatory in Hungary, regardless if you are in an urban or rural area or you are on the first row or second row of seats.

A romanian forum member said that he got a fine few months ago in Hungary, right at the border crossing, because a passenger from the rear seat didn't have his seatbelt on.

I'm Hungarian, living here, driving here, and I'm not sure if it is now mandatory to wear seat balts on the rear seats inside urban areas... Outside urban areas it has been mandatory for at least 15 years and I know it was planned to make it mandatory even inside urban area, but I don't know whether it was introduced or not...
I should check it but now I have not time for that :-)
However I always force my passengers (if I have any) to wear the belt.

I also tell my passengers to wear the seatbelt, but those standing on the rear seats are ok without if I drive just in the city.

I'm sure in all European countries have synchronized laws that oblige using the belts on the rear seats too. But at many places many people do not obey this rule, and police isn't so strict about it...
I just meant that the sign gives the wrong impression, because it specifies these mandatory things for outside urban areas.

Standing? Anyway, I also demand wearing seatbelt at least for the one behind me. If we crash, (s)he crashes in me. No, thanks.

I guess it depends on the law(s) in the country or countries where you're from.

Slightly off-topic:
The husband of one of my relatives (from Australia) paid a visit here to the Philippines. The husband was the only person I've ever saw who wore seatbelts in the back.

Here in the Philippines, the seatbelt law was just enacted only a few years ago and it only requires the driver and front passenger (I think) to wear seatbelts. Rear passengers are not required.

So yeah, I guess it depends where you're from and what is stated in your seatbelt law(s).

Nevertheless, it is obviously the job of the driver to inform his/her passengers to wear seatbelts if required by law (in accordance to the law in the jurisdiction or location that they're in)

What about passengers of the busses? Are they required, in any country, to wear the seat belts? I mean, if passengers in the rear seats of a small car are required…

I think the Finnish legislation requiring wearing the seat belts on the buses equipped with them, is based on the respective EU directive. Therefore, all the EU member countries should have introduced a similar legislation.

According to an EU directive, the buses built since 2006 must have seat belts, with the exception of city buses with standing space.

The law is not very widely obeyed nor enforced in Finland. In principle, the passenger travelling without wearing a seat belt is subject to a fine of 35 euros.

If you are a passenger in a bus and the police pulls you over you have plenty of time to put on your seatbelt without the policeman noticing that you were doing that right at that time... especially if you are standing on one of the rear seats.

Do not underestimate the skills of the policemen. They might enter a covert operation and masquerade ordinary passengers making observations, and attack between the stops.

Big Brother is watching you
Anyway, I never saw seat belts use enforced on buses.
