Interesting speed limit for trucks: 110 km/h.

Also, the signage in Iran looks quite sophisticated. A lot of French cars on the road.

Iranian car manufacturers produce lots of different French cars under licences from Peugeot, Renault etc. Iran Khodro is one of the biggest car manufactures, there is even a special exit from motorway and metro station for Iran Khodro Besides local cars and French models Kia seems to be the most popular cars (also produced locally).

Why, you thought they were using camels as transportation? Iran is a little more than they show on TV. (as is the case with many countries)

Nice informative pictograms about whether a road is an urban expressway, boulevard, etc.

So why doesn't the US provide everything in spanish, and GB in french? It's a silly suggestion, only foreign scripts are usually latinised to allow people to understand place names, usually into french or english

You forgot Greece, everything in the latin script there is also translated into English. Of course, if the country already has the Latin alphabet, the place names don't have to be translated - only the electronic signs and those warning signs that contain additional explanations.
