Does anyone know where I can find the standard signage used on German electronic gantries?

I'm looking for exact technical specifications of the speed limit signs, all warning signs with the red triangle (including ice, congestion, exclamation mark, etc.), height restrictions and passing restrictions.

Thanks in advance

What would you recommend me for 1-2 quick stops on the way from Ingolstadt to Breslau/Wroclaw? Görlitz seems a good choice and it's right near the motorway. Dresden could be too, but it's just to great for just a quick stop, only the detour through the city would cost more time. Bamberg I already visited twice.

Maybe a small town that has something special?

Thanks!

Görlitz is a very nice town, ideal for quick-stop Also Zittau near the Czech border, it's just about 20-30 minutes from A4

EDIT: There are also lots of limitations in municipalities that agreed. Look at the house I was living in while in Munich:

The municipalities made no problems. Google had to check each objection from each homeowner and that was too much.

Gorlitz is very nice, has a beautiful old city. Also Bautzen is a town that deserves a 2 hours visit. And it's right near autobahn A4.

The new A71 between the A38 and AS Artern (17.6km) will be opened on 29th April 2013.

The plan approval order for the widening (2x3) of the A6 between AS Wiesloch/Rauenberg und AS Sinsheim (10.8km; km 594+711 to km 605+500) was passed today. This was the last left order for the widening of the A6 between AK Walldorf (A5) and AK Weinsberg (A81). The orders for the other two sections were passed in July 2012 (AS Bad Rappenau to AS Heilbronn/Untereisesheim) and December 1998 (AS Heilbronn/Untereisesheim to AK Weinsberg). The Federal Audit Office ("Bundesrechnungshof") is currently checking if PPP is appropriate for the construction of the 3 sections. An economic feasibility study is necessary. It was formerly planned to start construction in 2014.

If that was the case, no city in Germany would have been streetviewed.

But what about motorways and other roads? Not all pass through towns?

Google pretty much was strongarmed into allowing every tenant - not just owners - of a residential building to object to their residence being shown in Google Streetview. Google received about 250,000 objections and pixelated all of these houses in the 20 cities for which it has Streetview data in Germany. Google subsequently cancelled all expansion plans for Streetview in Germany, and remains at the 20 cities originally mapped out without any updates since 2010 (unlike other countries).

Microsoft subsequently did a similar round of calling for objections when launching Bing Streetside, and received only about 80,000 objections - mostly because no one in Germany ever uses Bing or knows what it is. Microsoft subsequently permanently cancelled all Bing Streetside services for Germany.

The municipalities had no say in either case. The cities photographed were chosen by the companies. Some might have objected to municipal buildings being shown, dunno. Streets are public property anyway, and there's no legal recourse to have your property pixelated.

Understood, thanks. I didn't think it was so complicated.

Some further informations from last week:

- The groundbreaking ceremony for the B525 Nottuln bypass was on Friday. The construction will be finished in 2017. The new road has a length of 4.9km and costs 18.5 million €. The plan approval procedure was started in 2004, the order was passed in January 2010. It was challenged, but dismissed in 2011. The B525 is a connection between Münster and the Netherlands, see OSM.

- The groundbreaking ceremony for the last section of B30 Ravensburg bypass was announced for 3rd July 2013. The Federal government provided 1 million € for 2013 and 2 million € for 2014 through a quickening programm ("Infrastukturbeschleunigungsprogramm II"). There's no prediction for completion. The new 4-laned B30 section between AS Ravensburg-South and AS Karrer will be an "Autobahnähnliche Straße" (yellow Autobahn) and has a length of 3.4km. The 2.2km long 2-laned B467 section between AS Karrer and Obereschach is also part of the project. The total costs are 55 million €. The first plan approval order was passed in 1979. It was challenged and not res judicata. Thus a second procedure started in 2001, and the order was finally passed in December 2005. In the meantime the project was on hold due to missing money. The AADT on the concerned Ravensburg through-road was between 20,000 and 26,000 vehicles per day in 2010. The B30 is an important connection between Ulm and the Lake Constance area, e.g. Friedrichshafen, see OSM.
