Does anyone have a link to the Croatian traffic signing regulations, or some other document which has pattern-accurate figures for traffic signs in Croatia--preferably as vector images within PDF files? I don't mind if it is in Croatian, but don't know enough of that language really to get started with Google.

I'd be much obliged.

What does this sign mean?



Post any other examples of confusing signs you see.

Hi everyone, my name is Hezery and I'm new here... nice knowing all of you!

These are the route markers for Malaysian expressways and highways:-

- Toll expressway (lebuhraya), usually accompanied with the expressway logo which is similar with the Swiss autobahn logo. All toll expressway codes bear the capital E followed by the assigned numbers.

- Federal highways (laluan persekutuan). Federal route codes can also be written as FTxx (xx stands for route number), for example Federal Route 1 can also be written as Federal Route FT1. In Sabah, all federal highway codes start with the capital A followed by the assigned numbers.

- State highways (laluan negeri), starting with the state code letter followed by the assigned numbers. The state codes are as follows:-
  • A - Perak (can also mean "federal highways" in Sabah)
  • B - Selangor
  • C - Pahang
  • D - Kelantan
  • J - Johor
  • K - Kedah
  • M - Melaka
  • N - Negeri Sembilan
  • P - Penang
  • R - Perlis
  • SA - Sabah
  • T - Terengganu

What's the story behind Utah's state route marker? Looks like a beehive.

It is a beehive. It's the symbol of the state... all of the original mormon settlers saw themselves as living in a 'beehive', ie everyone working together toward the better good of the society. :P

Markers for a road leading to a route:

BTW, also the rectangular white number signs are for national highways ("riksveg, rv"), but of these are of lesser importance than the green ones, which are called "stamveger", kind of like the A and B-classifications of other countries. Sometimes only one section of a national road is green, whereas the rest (and lesser important part) could be white. In due course (50 years???), the green roads are supposed to meet a certain standard, so this is where most of our scarce road money goes. However, this being Norway, some of the "green" roads are currently less than 4 m wide on places, while some of the best motorways of Norway are in fact "white". Numbers are not indicated for county roads (Fvxxx) and municipal roads (Kvxxx)
To make things even more complicated, the national road administration system is going through a major makeover at present. The main consequence out on the roads, is that the term "riksveg" - national road - will disappear altogether from 2010: Instead, the "stamveg" - trunk road - will be the national road system and the current "riksveg" and "fylkesveg" - county road - networks will merge into a "regionveg" - regional road - system. The most obvious problem is that national roads are currently numbered en route whereas county roads aren't... I have yet to see a reasonable suggestion on how to merge them.

In addition, even though many national, trunk and European routes are in a pitiful state, they are (with a couple of touristy exceptions) paved. The county roads, however, not so much... The general state also varies considerably from county to county, so we are in for a big mess.

Can someone tell me why so many countries, mostly in Europe, have two grades of Motorway; that being the normal motorway signed ones and the ones with the car. What's the difference and are the distinctions really necessary?

The first one is a motorway, the second one is expressway There are some difference between them, technical ones. for example in Poland the speed limit on motorway is 130 km/h, on expressway 110 km/h and 100 km/h on single laned expressway. Motorway is wider, width of lane on motrway is 3.75 m and on expressway 3.5 m, hard shoulder is also more narrow on expressway and curves as well, on expressway there can be at the grade level crossings, but rarely. I think that just are main difference between motorway and expressway in Poland In different countries they are various

In the Netherlands, we have a motorway and a motorroad. The latter usually features grade-separation, but usually not a median and one lane per direction and a speed limit lower than 120km/h.

Yeah, the ones with the car symbol in Sweden are often just one lane on each side (or 1+2). They are of higher quality than regular highways but much below full motorways.

Do these roads ban the usual things, like pedestrians, learner drivers, low power vehicles etc?
