Exactly, so you don't get lost, if you can't read the Latin characters.

If you think it's messy, then it should only be in the language of the city's inhabitants, which you should know anyway, if you're going there. There are 15 names on this pic, and I don't think it's messy at all.

I think it's reasonable when all the signs are in the official language of the country.(where the sign is situated)

So? The point stays the same. Anyway, this is pretty offtopic already. Something on topic for a while. This is Tallinn-Tartu highway today(pic from Flickr)

Currently there is a traffic jam on this highway. A traffic jam on a rural highway in Estonia....

This is a street in Tallinn:

And buses that were blown off the road:

it does not. it is not the same if you have 4 destinations written on 2 signs, or only at 1. i doubt wheater 4 latinic-cyrillic destinations at only one sign would appear tidy

I think signs, that have more destinations, are more readable when they are in 2 scripts rather than in 1 script and two languages.
Example slovenian two language signs would be more readable for example if they were written in 2 different scripts, same script makes mess. But if u have 2 scripts you just pay attention on that you know.

Greece, they also use different color

than use two signs, or smaller number of destinations.
All i wanna say is that it is doable if you want to do it.

That's pretty bad. In what part of Europe it is not snowing now?

Not yet. Actually today we had beautiful sunny day with absolutely no clouds.
Tomorrow they forecast snow, but not much, maybe up to 10 cm. Still, I forecast chaos on roads.

10 cm is not much?? Probably not for you. Over here we barely have 2 cm, but at least it covers, so everything is white. The last time that really happened has been two years ago now, and the last time that the snow stayed for let's say a week was in 2003 (or 2004, too long ago)
