Parigi? Probably some kind of food.

Now I've also noticed that E1 road (on the left of those destinations in France). I thought E1 was in Portugal...

^ Indeed, where did they get E1, it's in Portugal, Spain, Ireland and UK, not Italy. And who cares for Paris here, that's nonsense. Oh, and is there any sign later that uses the word "Paris", not "Parigi"?

Paris is not signed the whole route, right? Than this sign makes no sense. We have some signs near Amsterdam that sign København, Berlin, London, Paris & Luxembourg once.

you wouldn't know for Parigi, but you would know for Nizza and Marsiglia?

btw, signs up to 500 km are not rare nor worth to mention, those over 500 km are more special (for Europe). we also have a thread about longest destances on signs

Nizza is also the german spelling for Nice and driving in that direction, Marsiglia should be clear, too

it says: via A5, A7, A2 Berlin 850 km

http://autobahn-bilder.de/inlines/a5...htung%20Kassel



but you could safe 20km when you'd drive via A5, A6, A9 (if Google Maps is right)
using A5, A7, A4, A9 is also about 20km shorter
and A5, A6, A81, A3, A7, A70, A71, A4, A9, too

Some South African ones that I know of...
  1. In Durban, on the N3 leaving town. Just after passing the interchange with the N2, the sign indicates 558km to Johannesburg.
  2. I think that the N2 leaving Port Elizabeth in the direction of Cape Town has a sign that indicates around 750km to Cape Town, but I'm not too sure.
  3. The furthest I've seen was when I was in Cape Town in January, and noticed a sign on the N1 indicating ~970km to Bloemfontein. It's a few kilometers past the R300 interchange.

These long distance markers are the exception rather than the rule in this country though. Most signs indicate the distance to the next town (regardless of size), and the next town of some significant size. Take the N3 for example (the Durban to Johannesburg road), which I've travelled on quite frequently. As you leave Durban, the first place of any significance is Pietermaritzburg, so that appears on all the distance markers. After Pietermaritzburg, Harrismith. After Harrismith, Jo'burg. Besides those towns that are indicated, smaller towns that come up before them are also indicated as you approach them.

Unfortunately, I don't have any photos to show you. I can search the web though if you're interested.

LOL! Yeah, this is the one. It's more of a cosmetic thing, but it isn't useless either.

Anyway, one more:

I remember this sign

And i prefer A5/A6/A9, because driving this way, i can avoid all big cities.

This is in Argentina, between Mendoza and San Luis.




I never realized the reason, since the brazilian border is almost 2000km from this point!!

it's interesting to see such long destinations. i've been thinking and i realized why we actually don't have them: we have made totaly order in traffic signs about 5-6 years ago and in law there are strictly defined destinations at signs. i don't know it exactly, but it has something with local centre, regional centre, county centre, macroregional centre, and i know there are in one paragraph foreign cities that can be signed.
