What a confusing setup...
Actually, in CZ, it's the clearest possible - they have signs indicating whether or not the road is subject to tolling.

"with payment"

https://www.google.com/maps/@49.1363...8i6656!6m1!1e1

"no vignette needed"

How is it going with the last section of the D8 around Lovosice? When do they think that part will be finished?

Its the last part of a motorway from Berlin to Prague so its very important.

...
We have new signage since 1.1.2016:


The green motorway sign indicates that vignette for vehicles up to 3.5 t is compulsory and that vehicles over 3.5 t have to pay toll.



The blue expressway sign does not indicate tolling at all, it has to be supplemented by a table indicating either vignette or toll (see symbols in the first picture).

Hopefully the section might be opened by the end of 2016, construction pace is showing significant progress.

This sign is being placed only at the border crossings. The languages there are (1) language of the neighbouring country and (2) english.

Ok. This sign is only existing on D5 (at the border) and behind the border on D8 (because it's toll-free up to the 2nd exit southbound). It's in Polish and English on D1, Slovakian and English on D2.

So that means that signs being posted at the German and Austrian borders are in German and English; at the Slovak border in Slovak and English; and at the Polish border in Polish and English?

There's currently no motorway border crossing to Austria.

Yes.

The polish text features "Tylko z winietą" and the slovak "Len s nálepkou".

Those signs should be placed on all kinds of roads near border crossings.

Why should "exactly this sign" be placed at all border crossings? I think the sign announces that the road you are driving is tolled.

I think it shows that motorways are tolled, not necessarily the road where the sign is located.

The fact that motorways are tolled is good information to show at all borders, because traffic using non-motorway border crossings can also end up on motorways, and seeing the sign on the on-ramp may be a little too late.

If so, then how are the toll-free sections signed? Like D1 near Ostrava?

There are signs like this on D8 just south of the German border - which is also toll-free:

These signs show (1) road with tolled for vehicles over 3,5 t (2) motorway without toll for vehicles over 3,5 t (which we don't have) or end of road section tolled for vehicles over 3,5 t.

Isn't that sign at the border quite misleading if tolled expressways still exist?

The sign is correct. The new category of expressways is now toll-free.

Are you sure about another version than German and English?? I have never seen it before and I think this is the only official version! Even on the border with Poland and Slovakia we are using German/English version including the new signage since 1.1.2016, see D1/A1 for example, I think another language versions are just not necessary.

The respective guideline contains examples of all three language modifications. I am not sure about the usage, old signs were mostly used in DE/EN version only, but it should have been used in all three modifications...

Correct but the reality everywhere is:

De iure neighbouring language and English
De facto German and English

I think there is no need to change the current practice.
