There's a bridge between Brazil and Guyana where one lane passes above the other on one of it's edges to allow the lane changing. The bridge is ready but not opperative because we're on electoral period and inaugurations are forbidden until the elections!! Probably will pop up some photos until the end of the year!!

Also, the crossings between mainland China (drive on right) and Hong Kong (drive on left) are all bridges and the crossover is done by creative braiding of the the approach ramps on one of their ends.

Surely this is really at a ferry port. Can you provide a link to the Flickr page (not a direct link to the image itself)?

Well, I guess the British have never been good at languages. Shouldn't it be "Conduisez ŕ gauche", since 'a' means 'has'? In case I'm wrong (my french is horrible), this also counts for some Dutch people

I always thought Scotland drives on the left too... Isn't this sign in some port city which carries ferry traffic from the Faroe Islands?

well then, I bet that sign is by Dover or something like that. France does drive on the right, and if you cross, I'm sure there is a sign like that.

I know there's one in Calais. It's simple, but says "Drive on the Right" with an arrow pointing..to the right.

Left is izquierda is Spanish. And to drive is conducir. And por ? It seems they make mistakes in every language.

Circule por la izquierda and Conduzca por la izquierda would be both correct in Spanish

It's interesting that the circular sign "Toll" has yellow background even though it is located after Russian sign. Russian "Toll" sign, just like any other prohibitive signs, has white background:


Did they borrow the sign from Finland?
