I believe semi-automatics (clutchless manuals) are the way of the future.

One performance artist changed about 50 pedestrian traffic lights in Prague this March. Funny is that he did it during work day and even policemen thought he's troubleshooter.

Selection of his "art", each green and red man was different :

Very cool! Are they still in use or did the city switch them back?

What if you put Germany's (Hesse's) signage on US highways?

I just felt like making some image editings (too much freetime? ), just to see how it would like. After posting the first pictures here (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...246489&page=6), I decided to start a new thread about this because I'd like to do some more and will show them here.

There is one thing that we don't have in Germany which would be very useful: numberboxes for state routes. we only have the autobahn (interstate) one in blue and the bundesstraßen (us route) one in yellow. i'll make the state route (landstraßen) ones in white.

This example is exit 8 on Interstate 95 Northbound New Jersey Turnpike (Hightstown/East Windsor)

=>



Next one is on the same road, exit 13
