Between the two highways, a skyscraper is under construction.

It's awful, but it's necessary. It's the main (and only) east-west connection in Genoa.

Since nobody has yet posted the pics of urban motorways in the States, I decided to share a few from my last trip to San Francisco.

I-80 near Berkeley




Although these motorway signs are easy to understand, I don't like them because they look crappy. Oversized route shields take too much space and the font is not as neat as on the German signs. IMHO.

I-80 on Bay Bridge


In this picture on the right you can take a peek at the famous Transamerica Pyramid.

Kiev30, motorway в переводе с английского означает автомагистраль - разделительный барьер, отсутствие одноуровневых пересечений и т.д. Ни на одной из ваших фоток автомагистрали нет. В черте Киева я вообще не знаю ни одной настоящей автомагистрали.

Kiev30, to sum it up, neither of your pictures depicts a motorway.

This is a post-USSR mentality. Unfortunately, I know it all too well

Kiev30, you see, my friend, this topic is about city motorways. On a motorway there are no bus stops, no parking, no sidewalks, and no one-level crossings. Only a few of your pictures show actual motorways, and the rest - just ordinary city streets.

You asked me where I live. Right now I live in California, but originally I am from Königsberg. However, I have driven through Kiev numerous times, so I know my ways around that city quite well. The only road within the city limits that distantly reminded me the motorway was Проспект Бажана that ran from the South Bridge to the Borispol Motorway. And still, it had bus stops and sidewalks.

To be fair, people in former USSR are new to driving and still not used to driving or following important rules.

I wouldn't say so. While it is true that few people owned cars back in the USSR, the driving tests were still very hard to pass. Still, Soviet licensed drivers were very undisciplined. I knew a man who had 40+ years of driving experience in Russia, and let me tell you - he was aweful. The reason for him being a bad driver was not due to his lack of knowledge of traffic laws, but he just didn't give a damn about them.

Paris signage is way too messy. There is way too much information on those signs, and actually almost no sign is out of 1 part, mostly out of 2 or 3 parts. Signage on intercity Autoroutes is okay, but not near cities if you ask my opinion.

Yes, that's true. While the idea of separating autoroute/extra urban/urban information on autoroute signs using different colours is good, the implementation doesn't look quite as good. Three different colours on a single sign is a bit overkill.
