maybe im biased but...

i always liked the ca style of the federal route markers (which doesnt have a corny black background), plus ca is the ONLY state marker that isnt a square

its makes it nice and consistent: all route markers (including of course interstates) are SHIELDS, not just signs

It might seem to be incomprehensible for foreigners - does it have a 'Toll road' badge as well or not?

There is actually only one toll road in Israel - Road 6, a north-south motorway which at present is about 90km long and is being extended both northwards and southwards.

As well as the above symbol it also has verbal signs at all of its entrances explaining the system. The toll system is completely electronic - a picture is taken of your license plate and you get a bill in the mail.

You can read about it here (not completely up to date):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highway_6_(Israel)

Croatia:

european route




autocesta/motorway




državna cesta/state road (1, 2 or 3 digit)




županijska cesta/county road (allways 4 digit)




distance marker at motorway



distance marker at state road



distance marker at county road




we have also local roads, but their numbers (5 digits) are only symbolic, they never appear in public nor at signs.
also, some expressways aresigned with B-number (B8 and B9), but i cannot find those signs (they are the same as for motorway, but blue, and not A, but B)
