I'll do a little comparison here. I live in Tampa, but this map has both Tampa and Orlando.

I see them all the time. Horrible for traffic flow. New design standards don't allow it, but there are always "non-standard exceptions". Welcome to America.

I believe Germany only has two left-hand exit/entrances. Can someone confirm?

Can we really count US 19 and SR54? I mean US19 is only a freeway for a 5 mile section with a break that is finally under construction that connects to another 3 mile section of freeway before its just an artery road again. SR54 though a major artery is not a freeway at all.

Tampa, especially the Clearwater-St. Petersburg peninsula has only one real freeway (I-275), but Pinellas County has a population of 930,000. I also believe traffic safety is below average in this area because there are less limited access and grade-separated features, and high traffic volumes are recorded in residential areas.

Left exits are allowed on almost all Fwys across the world, but are rarely used because the exit is in the overtaking lane.

It's double that, but still.

-A8 Eastbound and A62 Southbound at Pirmasens-Winzeln
-A46 Eastbound at Dreieck Neuss-West (exit 20). This left exit is in the off-ramp of the interchange.
-A81 Northbound at Gärtringen (exit 27).
-A100 Northbound at Siemensdamm (exit 5)

The left exits at Pirmasens-Winzeln result from the abandoned plans to extend the A8 from Pirmasens to Karlsruhe. The A8 would continue, rather than change into the A62 Northbound. For the A62, you would take the exit. And at that Southern terminus of the A62, the left lanes would continue towards Karlsruhe and you would exit for the A8 Westbound. Those plans are mirrored in the exit that is left. The continuing Autobahns as planned are now left exits.

The exit at Gärtringen also results from a change of plan. Again the A81 was originally planned to run directly to the North at Gärtringen, rather than the easterly route it now takes.

Denmark has 1 left-hand exit and no left-hand entrances.

That looks like plastic construction safety mesh, except plastic construction safety mesh is orange. WTF?

And this is one seriously overdone exit sign!

Fair enough, but most of rural northern Alabama is no different than the rest of rural Alabama.

Actually I was referring to information overload, not structural overload. Three numbered routes, one unnumbered route, four destination towns, mileage to all four of them-- and five arrows all pointing in the same direction! I've never seen anything like it. It's too much information for motorists to process.

As far as the long span of the gantry, there are longer ones here in Georgia, sometimes with signs for both directions of the motorway. I guess they do that to get out of having to construct a footing on the motorway centerline.
