There are still some 20 and more years old signs that used Grotesk or some other "ancient" font But DIN surely prevails everywhere now.

It seems certain aspects of the UK's membership also apply to them, however they are not part of the EU and their citizens do not, for example, vote in the European Parliament elections.

It is, indeed. I stated it just to differ the CZ one from PL, that uses Drogowskaz font

BTW the speed limits sign should still according to the regulation look like this:

It's not that we would like Gibraltar to remain the way it is, it's just that we don't give a shit...

Yep. I found out from the Polish forum that they had changed the sign and put this one up. Here is how it looks now.

I really find it ridiculous all these republics in eastern Europe who use the coats of arms of the ancient monarchies. I mean, if you want to be a monarchy, call back the kings, tsars, etc., but being a republic while using the coats of arms of the ancient monarchies is ridiculous in the extreme.

In Poland the communists removed the crown from the Eagle and it looked like this:
[img]http://t2.************/images?q=tbn:lwz6eNtqLxaYCM:http://polonistika.upol.cz/moduly/godlo%20prl.png[/img]
The reason it was put back up was to show continuity with the Second Republic (1918-1939) and reverse whatever communists did...

Actually we did call the tsar back, but he became a Prime Minister.

That's odd. On the french site, the speed limit is 20 km/h. On the UK side, the speed limit is 20 mph (30 km/h)

I think there's about 20 miles of sea between the two, so not really that odd...

The exact border is perfectly visible on the front section of the picture. You can see a different type of surface on the polish side and there is a border stone on the right which is located exactly on the border
