Here you can watch video with the new signage on D1 between Bratislava and Trnava. This section is one of the first with signs according to the new traffic law and the first one with signs for 2x3 motorway. You may notice motorways and expressway are now signed with their full name ("D1" and "R1" instead of simple "1"). New are also numbers of interchanges.

Photos from the video:

Very interesting

Is there a rule when a city name should be written in uppercase or lowercase letters?

Names of the cities (destinations) - e.g. ÄILINA, NITRA are written in uppercase letters.
Names of the interchanges - e.g Trnava, Voderady are written in lowercase letters. Of course, iterchanges are named after nearby cities or municipalities.

Not only in Slovakia. Zip-merging is pretty new thing in Eastern Europe and people are not used to that.

/\ Not really. Merging in Lithuania is actually pretty good. Much better than, say, the UK, where all people go into one lane and then beep an don't let you in if you're in another!

this is one of rare things that works fine in city jams here in HR Surprisingly). people are very solidary in that situations.

btw, those new SK signs have too much emtpy space left, reminds me on SLO signs

Well, I would say it's better than in Poland and worse than in Sweden.

It may look emptier because old signs were only for two lanes and also names of the cities in this particular case are quite short. They also moved road numbers on the top of the sign while previously the were on the bottom between the arrows.

This is example of old signage:

Finally there are better photos of new signage available:

I have to say I'm a bit embarrassed by the grid which is visible when the sun is shining directly to to signs.
