Here's one I took in NJ

OMG this picture was taken in my hometown (elizabeth, NJ). Right before 1&9 turns into an expressway and by the airport. This must've been taken over the summer because the trees still look green and the construction is still going on.

It's not exact: In USA and Canada, all signs are green on all roads.
But Motorways (Interstates) use small signs that are blue.

IMHO, both USA and Canada should be painted in blue.

Belgium is a bit strange: signs are blue on motorway, white and yellow on normally roads but green on normally roads if a motorway is concerned.
IMHO, Belgium should be painted in blue and green.

I was taken in June during my NY trip. I stayed in Woodbridge, NJ. but spend my entire day in NYC.

Eomer I'm talking about highway markings or signs that tell where the road leads to

Which 'city motorways' exactly are you talking about? MKAD for example? But MKAD isn't true motorway/freeway, but expressway/fast road/road reserved for motor vehicles, with a speed limit of 100 km/h.

We're talking about this:


NOT this:



And here (on MKAD - the Moscow bypass) we can see in the 107th second that it's the last sign.

But blue is used only on expressways ('brza cesta' in Bosnian), like Banja Luka - Klašnice, right? On freeways (autocesta/autoput) only green, as far as I know.

Norway uses blue signs on motorways. I think it's basically a copy of the German system; we have black on yellow for most other, "normal" road signs, and black on white for local signs.

this is sign #5.3 of Russia's rules - "Road for cars only".


according to rule 16.3. Condition of this section (16. Motorways) is also relates to roads with the sign #5.3


MKAD shots. yes it's motorway.

Updated map, thanks everyone:



I assumed that Montenegro won't have changed their rules since they became independent from Serbia!

Just missing a few countries now... any more info would be great

Hi!
You remembered that! Hehe!

I went from Budapest to Italy through Austria. I took the Hungarian M1 to the Austrian border, then a bit of austrian A$ motorway and I exited to get the austrian road 50, and then I took the A2 all to way to the Italian border(near Villach).
I have many photo's of the that jouney.
