Isn't 535 the address number.

In the UK "m" means mile, unless it means metre . Height is in metres, most distances are in miles yards, except some, which will say metre in full

In Bulgaria
At the end of a long straight on a 2-lane road:


The straight begins with "Please, drive carefully!", but I couldn't find a picture of it.


Parking (street).
It looks like a fresco in a church aiming to scare you by showing you the hell, i.e. what will happen to you if you don't comply (pay, in this case) and what you should do to save your soul (car).

The farmer Darsílio Schwanz, 53, built a bridge in the community of San Sebastian, Santa Maria de Jetibá (brazil), after being isolated with a precarious bridge made of old wood, which prevented the passage of cars and trucks. The work was completed in June, but what caught the attention of the local population was the latest sign that he placed next to the building





Particular bridge, prohibited the passage of vehicles of municipal government and politicians

Off topic: Yes, and if you ride the train, there is Göd, and the next station is "Also God" (actually it is spelled "Alsógöd") :-)

Cetățeni turmentați = drunk (tourmented, inebriated) citizens

Few days after I took the pictures I saw this sign on all Romanian TV stations and after that I read in the local newspaper that the towns mayor had to take the signs down, so they aren't there anymore.
