It may be a little funny, but it's not the same, you can actually drive to those cities (and they aren't thousands of kms away). And numbers aren't made up, but they show air distances.

Btw, Innsbruck and Salzburg are signed in Austria via Germany.

Haha, I remember they had already posted that sign in Padua with Berlin, Barcelona, London, Trapani and Beijing (!) in it. Even Huesca is closer to Padua than Trapani. And I believe those are road distances, like Beijing 11650 km, because there are 7950 km as the crow flies from Padua to Beijing.

I've just realised that I took a picture of a sign showing the direction to Turkey and Greece on A1 is Austria. It's only the country code, but still, quite a long way from Austria.



Bonus: as Chris wrote on Austrian motorways thread, SG is the country code for Singapore. But it's clear that they wanted to sign Serbia...

Of course you can

Wien - India/Myanmar border

Inside Myanmar Google Maps directions don't work

Myanmar/Thailand border - Singapore

I wonder why it suggests you to take the ferry on the Danube rather than the bridge...

The bridge at Calafat (RO) / Vidin (BG) is still u/c. Pictures here... and those 2 bridges appearing on google maps are not there, never were, and will never be there. The new bridge that is u/c starts somewhere between Basarabi and Calafat (in RO) and ends somewhere around Antimovo (BG).

When was that pic taken? I thought that I had read that the refences to Turkey, Greece and Serbia were removed from this sign, and that Italy and Slovenia were now the only countries referenced for the A10. Which sounds like the more sensible approach, if you ask me. When arriving from the east even more than upon arrival from the west.

I took it in February this year.

Hmmm. Maybe they only replaced those countries on the sign when arriving from the West. Which is the sole driving direction where references to Turkey and the like make any sense. But well, that's Austrian signage in a nutshell...

It's true .
This is a Photo of the nice report of Mediar () from 2 April 2011.
You can see the signal in the opposite direction, which indicates only Slovenia and Italy.

Hello.

Let me look for (in some threads I watched some pics) but Barcelona is signed about 800 km from southern Spain (I've seen it 600 km away) and at Bordeaux (France)

It is the same country... and no long distances... but route from France to southern Spain is indicated both in Spanish and Arabic.

Later, at Andalucia they indicate the two major harbours (Algeciras and Almeria, depending your destination) to get a ship in Spanish and Arabic.

In order to increase security, there are prepared specific rest areas with information in Arabic every 200 km (for example, 500 away from Sea it is possible to buy ship tickets).

Apart of it... last summer, police controlled that all cars did not have more than 3.500 kg (car included). Sometimes they found incredible things... normally the penalty is very big but as it was the first time (and made just in the border with France) they offered drivers to took anything they consider until car had less than 3500 kg... and they kept in a warehouse totally free for one month (when returning home they could get those things).

They make very long trips, sometimes from central Europe to northern Africa... and the last part, just before getting the ship is where they have more accidents.
Should the car has more weight than allowed, possibilities of accident are higher.

Here you have an example.

Algeciras and Almeria are indicated, both in Spanish and Arabic.

All Spanish drivers will look for any other indication on crosses (Cordoba, Sevilla, Jaen...), but for someone who wants to go to Morocco or Algeria, these are the two main indications they need
