This sign is illegal and not approved in traffic code. It is also not against the law to smoke there.

Weird. Our road inspection will fine a road authority if they would put two signs on a same pole, but this is going overlooked.

Why the hell would it be prohibited to smoke there? Come on, I've never seen such a sign on a motorway, but the sign seems to be illegal anyway.

Probably for all those "Germans", "Swiss" and "Italians", who wait before border and cannot hold without cigarettes. Their "wonderful" manners probably forced authorities, which were obviously not satisfied with too dirty roads full of yellow and white filters to put nonsmoking sign.

Actually, it is more because of the buses. When entering Slovenia, there is no EU lane for buses, so you have to wait all those buses from BiH, MK, AL and so on. This is quite a long procedure. So most of the bored tourist are just let on the side of the road near the queue and start smoking. There are no rubbish bins, so they just throw their cigarettes away in the grass. This annoys the border guards and they may fine you with 60 euros, I guess. And - it is legal, since it is a border crossing point.

The fine is actually 250 euros if you throw anything on the road.

90% of them would do that anyway.

Why illegal? Remember, it's not a traffic sign.

You are not allowed to put anything not approved by law on the same pole of a traffic sign. Second, on a motorway you can put up only pre-approved traffic signs. Third, on every government owned road there are rules that say how far is protected area where can there be only traffic signage (that's why you have even on G-xx roads advertisements so far away).

V tem pasu je prepovedano postavljanje reklamnih, obvestilnih in drugih objektov, ki niso namenjeni zagotavljanju prometne varnosti.

Hi,

The H5 between Koper and Izola is going to be almost entirely in a tunnel, so there's not much to see here. I think it should open in 2012.
The A2 by Trebnje is having new problems with expropriation, so it's not sure, whether it will be finished next year or in 2011. They made some mistakes about it.

It has nothing to do with it though. We all need this motorway ASAP. Novo mesto is home to the biggest Slovenian exporter (Revoz producing Renault cars) and the biggest Slovenian pharmaceutic company (Krka). If we wanted to screw Croats, we wouldn't've built a motorway between Novo mesto and Croatian border. LOL @ the smilie!
