Nice roadsigns ! But I'm surprised Jordan uses the 0123456789 number format instead of ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩ for road numbers.

P.S.: AFAIK, the official abbreviation is HKJ (as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan)

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

Of course, I'm not talking about the roadsign color as on these 2 countries blue is for motorways ... How is it in "Al-Urdunn" ?

In Jordan they omited the motorway class so now it's just roads. Let's say like Mexico. The sign for all of them is blue.

And this sign is more russian style!!

I wonder what the difference between the white background road number shield and the green road number shield is.
I guess the green background shield acts like this:
In swede
and the white one like this:
