We (in Slovakia) have those signs and they have been always present (even during commies' times). Not exactly the capitals, but the nearest and important cities (in original language) are posted. Ukraine is the only exception, we have only few signs directing to "Ukraine". Czech republic has them surely too.

Czech, Austrian and Hungarian cities at one sign


Austrian and Hungarian cities and Polish and Ukrainian ovals as well


The only exception (Ukraine is referred on the lower sign as "Ukrajina")

Imo, it is the same in Czech Republic.



I thought that Northern Ireland is right next to the Republic of Ireland.

So they sign not only a city, but also a road number of a foreign country which is very unusual.


In Ruggell (FL):

I remember as well a German autobahn shield marking the French motorway A36 on the A5 near the Mulhouse border, and a Spanish styled rectangle for the French A-63 in an access to the Spanish A-8 in Irun. Besides, there is some Portuguese road number marked with the Spanish styled rectangle as well in some border in Galicia.

Two U.S. Interstate shields near Montreal: http://www.asphaltplanet.ca/PQ/A/10/A10_dv_6-8_east.jpg

And there are plenty of such examples...you can also see "North Interstate 87 to Autoroute 15" (it may even say "to/vers") far below the border.

Typical Albanian signs...

Showing border name (albanian side) but nothing else.

Hani Hotit without MNE sign



Morinë without RKS sign



Kakavie without GR sign here



Koplik is 17km from the border but still no MNE sign



Here showing FYR Macedonia but just before the border and it's written "Maqedoni" in albanian language not in English and no MK sign

In Croatia, near Goričan / Muracsány:

1.


2.


3. "Carina/Douane" sign is not yet replaced (it is obsolete since Croatia's EU membership). Same on Hungarian side.

A2 (Croatia) near Đurmanec, signs for Maribor with SLO sticker



A9 (Croatia) exit Buje/Buie, signs for Trieste and Koper with SLO, I and A sticker



D33 (Knin, HR) Signs for Strmica with BiH sticker and signs for Bosansko Grahovo without sticker





But also interesting, near Dubrovnik and the border to Montenegro, I could find any signs to e.g. Herceg-Novi or Podgorica.

There are no signs to Podgorica in Croatia, only to Herceg Novi and Tivat.

This wednesday I noticed that a road cut to trucks and buses in France (RN-134 in Urdos) was adviced in Zaragoza, about 180 km away from incidence, via electronic pannels.
