it is just to calm people because even when emoticon is sad, you know how many km to go. it is always easier than when you don't know anything.

It's obvious!

Left lane goes to BOLOG
Right lane goes to NIA

Here is the standard 60 km/h sign that is used in Sydney, Australia:



There are two examples near where I live where the sign has been screwed onto the post "landscape" style instead of "portrait" style, with the result that the top and bottom of the red circle touches the edges of the sign, as compared with the gap on the normal sign.

In Europe, this would mean entering a zone of a speed limit to 60 km/h. In some countries, there is a text "zone" added on the sign, but in some (including Poland) not.

Curiously the Mexican speed limit sign seems very similar to the Australian, both using a somewhat inexplicable nonstandard

I would not apply that to the entire Europe. For example, in my country it would mean the speed limit 60 kph.

Not a road sign but a street sign...

In my homecity there is a big school and high school that required to have a pedestrian street in the main gate. Therefore, it is forbidden to drive there in some hours depending when they entry or get out school and providing kids, primary and high school have different schedules.




OK.... seems easy to understand..... but.... school changed some years ago their schedules and this sign is out of date. You can drive when all children are going out and forbidden when non-sense

They could use this verbage (Meaning "On school entry and exit hours") and they wouldn't have to change it every time the school changes schedules.

But it's too unspecific. How can a driver not being local know what time the bell rings at the local school?

Looking some mettres ahead and glancing if there are children in the street or nobody

(streets around schools have a lot of people before/after classes start/end and nobody the rest of the day).

In addition, with this sign, it is allowed to drive when holidays, summer, weekends and so on...

Just... common sense

And how can it be guaranteed that all the students won't disappear earlier after the finished classes than the assumed time? Or that they won't stay there longer?

The validity of the sign could be defined by the presence of the children on the street. But then, it would be enough to give them the priority on it, so that the drivers just must be careful...

Regarding the street, it should.... even if parking in the street is allowed.

https://www.google.es/maps/@41.64576...2!8i6656?hl=es


In the same street, it is very usual to have fences in front of school gates in the pedestrian area for safety.

The problem is the high number of pupils going there, for a smaller school, nobody will matter.

And for instance they can say kids 9 to 13 and 15 to 16:30, primary 9 to 13:30 and 15:30 to 17, high school, 8 to 14 only...therefore, try to ckeck all schedules to apply

Now, school decides to change schedules and sign is out of date

It is weird. At first, no need to set it but I know that the number of pupils is not normal...


With similar situation... in one out of smallest schools in the city... they made street pedestrian and should you wanna go to the opposite side, turn another block by car.

https://www.google.es/maps/@41.63865...2!8i6656?hl=es

I know there were dangerous situations

In Poland, the rule is that there must be a fence in front of the school gate. And there cannot be a zebra crossing right ahead of it. This is all. It is also quite common that the municipalities install speed bumps in such places.

An example for my high school I attended to: https://goo.gl/maps/tsiChySj6WK2

The pedestrian crossing is at the distance of a few tens of meters.

The school has 428 students (actually, used to have in the previous school year, there is no data for the current one).

An interesting example of a primary school in a big residential area: https://goo.gl/maps/PjpUL5Grh3p

It has a zebra crossing right ahead of the entrance, but there is a maze made of barriers, so that the pupils will not quickly run onto the street.

A primary school in the countryside: https://goo.gl/maps/5F83zAA6uGy - it also has a fence, although it's not very big.

In a small town, but next to a busy street being a national road: https://goo.gl/maps/ZQNiykP2u8n

There is a man on duty who helps the children cross the street.

Another school in the same town - also quite a busy street: https://goo.gl/maps/Xc4exVbh8yG2

In US and Canada it is common in such cases to add yellow flashing lights to such sign with a "when flashing" tab. The school director has a button in his office to turn it on when the kids are moving around...

It could also be just a red light, without any sign, or a red blinking one like on level crossings (to suggest it may last a little bit longer).

Makes even more sense because everyone knows what red means (although not everyone always applies to that, especially on level crossings, and then we have dangerous accidents).

Or just an electronic sign that can be turned on-off. We are in the 21st century after all...
