I happened on this set the other day, while looking for a typical Quebec exit sign.

Some interesting photos from both sides of the U.S.-Canada border south of Montreal, particularly on page 2 and 3 of the set. Including signs for Montreal in the U.S., signs for New York in Quebec, bilingual signage....

EDIT: Even more in the same user's set titled "Montreal"

Hungary (M70) -> Slovenia (A5). Notice a green Slovenian sign in Hungary for the rest area Pince in Slovenia (and Slovenian language before Hungarian, hehe).

Tanks can pretty much do what they want.

Why one and two arrows on signals and different numbers?

Must be a regulation that has remained in tact from the Hitler era. After all, he built Autobahns, so that his tanks wouldn't get stuck in traffic...

Got it!!!!, google street view crossed there and photos are available.

It is the only Schengen border with no customs or controls


Os de Civis (E) - Sant Julia de Loria (AND)


Looking to Spain:




There is no signal about entering in Spain. Only signals that point the direction of Os de Civis (no other possible way), remembering you are entering in a protected area and that it is forbidden to wash your car


Looking to Andorra



Only I can see at the end a signal with the Andorran numeration.


There is no customs, no fence and no passport control. Spain is in Schengen area and Europan Union, Andorra isn't in both of them.

But Os de Civis is a Spanish little town that there is no other way to go there (apart of helicopter or climbing mountains). So anyone who go, must return.

There is no duty control between Spain and Andorra if you go there (all Andorra is a duty free country), because you will use it in that town and it is cheaper to allow using duty free goods rather than making here a control.

Should you go to the rest of Spain you may enter again in Andorra and crossing the general border Andorra-Spain where you will have all controls.

As well as it is a zone between mountains, it is not easy to avoid custom controls.

No, this is no speed limit, its military load class signalization used by nato pact and its forces.

It means weight limits in tons, not speed.

This is German army propaganda. After WW2 Germans were afraid of a retaliation attack, so they extended highways and rebuilt many national roads to facilitate the movement of troops. Once you know what it is and you drive all over the country, you get the idea that they must have been pretty scared
