Indonesia

Exit signs
[IMG]http://i43.************/1sd0kj.jpg[/IMG]

Interchange overhead signs - no difference though with the exit ramp signs

Speed limit signs, the km letter inside the sign IMO is not really useful and made the numbers inside smaller.

Don't they indicate which road you're on? I don't see numbers nor a road name.

If you're talking about the Indonesian one, AFAIK there's no road numbering in the Indonesian toll road system, and the roads itself lacks of signage indicates which toll road you are. The name of the toll road is only placed in the termini or before the entrance of a toll road. Like this:

[IMG]http://i40.************/2dj905.jpg[/IMG]

And also, there's no standardised traffic signs regulations for toll roads that differentiate them from the non-toll road traffic sign regulation in Indonesia. That means that maybe any toll road company can create a toll road with German-style directional signs.

Government of FYROM needs to start the implantation of Albanian road signs in a country where a third of the population is Albanian.

i have recently seen this sign near Liège/Luik/Lüttich at Loncin Interchange in Belgium, found that quite entertaining simply by the number of destinations there...


https://www.google.de/maps/@50.65425...7i13312!8i6656

but inconsistent.
later on that route at the interchange to Verviers, St Vith and Prüm, there is actually Verviers and Saarbrücken signed, but on the distange signs after the interchange you'll find Trier instead of Saarbrücken... Also noticeable: While the flemish cities are written in french and not dutch here, the dutch/german cities are written in dutch/german.

Aix-la-Chapelle used to be signed along E42, but they replaced it with Aachen a number of years ago.

How is it with the spelling of the names of the cities abroad on the road signs in your countries?

In Poland, the law states that the name should be given in the original spelling from the language of the country in which the city is located. Without diacritics and converted to Latin alphabet if originally in Cyrylic. With the oval symbol of the country next to it.

Sometimes, especially on local roads, they forget about this rule. And use the Polish spelling, or some weird hybrids. An example of a Polish sign from the past, on which Copenhagen was spelled as Kopenhagen (they used the German spelling without any reason - in Polish it's Kopenhaga, in Danish it's Kĝbenhavn).

In Germany - the signs to Polish cities have usually the German name and then the Polish name in brackets. Although German name only can also be seen. Polish name only - rather not (unless it's the same as the German one).

But close to the German-French border, I have seen a sign to Strasbourg which spelled Strasbourg (the French spelling) and not Straßburg (the German spelling).

An interesting example here: https://goo.gl/maps/yBYU8CHPfLq

It's an error that they added the PL symbol next to the D and CZ symbols (it is used if the name of the border checkpoint is given on the sign, not the name of the foreign town, as it's here). And it's also unusual (although nice) that they gave the foreign road numbers on this Polish sign. The only thing I don't really understand is why they placed not only the number, but also the category of the Czech road (I/35 instead of just 35). It seems they had I/35 in papers, so they stupidly placed it on the sign.

It's definitely solved better than here: https://goo.gl/maps/yxaTEZqeG7P2 where they probably assume that the state border is the end of the world and there is nothing behind The sign shows the direction to the "town" Granica Państwa, which actually means "state border".

On the other hand, here: https://goo.gl/maps/4hxxP584V7P2 it's practically perfect. They even used the Czech diacritics! The only problem - the directional city for this road behind the border, in Czech Republic, is Trutnov. Our designers placed on the sign, inconsequently, the town of Hradec. But the signs in Poland often lack the consequence too.

Meanwhile... Czechs placed Lubawka on the sign: https://goo.gl/maps/jqGdw3VkZPS2

Misspelled as Łubawka. They used... a Polish diacritic on their sign, but erroneously. And also - just Lubawka, a small town close to the border, while it's a one of most important roads in the country.
