Why don't you write the second part of the city name with a capital letter? Is it a slovenian grammatical rule or an exception?

Novo mesto = New city, right?

^ It's gram. rule. Actually it's New town, or in English it would be New Town. Oh, it was founded in 1365.

khm, in our (croatian) grammar all words in city names are written with capital letter (except prepositions and conjunctions), that's why i write Novo Mesto but then i should write Novo Mjesto or Novo mesto

So you don't have to take a side, they should just rename it something to something neutral like Nowe Miasto. :p

This is a nice roundabout in Zagan, Poland:

[IMG]http://i26.************/658uac.jpg[/IMG]

It's nice if you've been drinking too much , you can cradle with the roundabout

btw: why the hell did they put Luban on that sign, it's about 70km away, and it isn't even a big town or something.....

And why not? This is a small regional road, not a national one

Do You have any other pics of this traffic circle?

You're right, I've had a look at Google Earth, and between Zagan and Luban there are only small villages. And yes, I have two more pics, but they don't really show the roundabout itself, but I will post them.

Edit: I will post them in the Polish thread, so we can discuss awkward road signs over here.

Újváros is hungarian for "New Town", x-type is of course referring back to the Novo Mesto/Novo mesto discussion

Apparently you have to stop when it is red, otherwise an aircraft will hit you

There is also a runway across the only acces road of Gibraltar. You have to stop there in order to make the plane able to land. Pretty funny

I remember in London there was a thing where planes would cross a road near Heathrow. I got held back there once and this huge plane went across the road

The only access road to Gibraltar crosses the airport runway as Chris said.

Some years ago there was a road near Barcelona-El Prat airport where the planes went really close to the road. It's closed now.
