Yeah, Spanish A-92 near the town of Loja. It's a mountainous area, the motorway goes through severe slopes (I think it's 6% or 7%).

I have seen also in the A-15 going down to San Sebastian.

That motorway was opened in the 1991, similar to A-92.

Two times I had pass over there in my life, and the last was more than 5 years ago and I still remember this traffic sign…

And I guess it was A-92 because the pavement is very bad in the photo…

More crazy traffic signs in Madrid:

Entering by A-3, M-40 interchange:
http://g.co/maps/5w76m

Entering by A-1, also M-40 interchange:
http://g.co/maps/kdw6u

M-40/M-14/M-21/A-2 interchange, coming from M-40 south:
http://g.co/maps/g8fx7

Entering by A-6, M-40 interchange:
http://g.co/maps/3prcp

Entering by A-5, M-40 interchange (through a small connecting highway named A-5/1
http://g.co/maps/v93pe

M-13/M-12 interchange, from M-13 east:
http://g.co/maps/semm5

The first thing you see when you exit Barajas Airport (Terminal 1) is "this":
http://g.co/maps/khk3q

Also entering Barajas Airport from M-14 south (M-11 interchange)
http://g.co/maps/rkcs5

M-40/M-14/M-21/A-2 interchange, from M-21 east:
http://g.co/maps/f5kd4

And finally... analyze this (M-50/M-45 bifurcation).
http://g.co/maps/n2uap
Yes, both roads get you to those destinations, but the sign does not say that if you want to take them outside Madrid you should take M-50, and if you want to enter Madrid you should take M-45.

Somebody evidently had a total writer's block when it came to providing the list of destinations

I think that if a road forks, it is a very bad practice to give both branches the same control city. There surely must be some way to differentiate between the two; and if indeed the flow of long-distance traffic is so big that it needs to be split into two, then it must be high time to invest into a traffic monitoring system and give guidance via VMS's.

Looking at the map, for me it is totally incomprehensible why M-45 should have anything to do with Valencia. Aren't there any destinations in South Madrid to signpost?

The A-3/R-3 dilemma is at least understandable. I assume that R-3 is faster, but tolled, right?

No I don't think so. In Iran they drive on the right so the signs will be on the right side of the road

Interestingly, in Japan, some regulatory signs look exactly like those in Europe ...




... while others are quite different:

I think this signaling the problem comes from the "history" of these roads: the first road to be built was M-45 (in the last 1990's), with the primary objective of connecting metropolitan cities of east and south Madrid, but it automatically became a very useful beltway between A-2 and A-4.

Later, different sections of M-50 (the "genuine" beltway) were completed, and for some years there was still an unfinished section between that point (M-45) and M-31, so the only option to "complete" the ring was still M-45. And finally, when they completed that sectionn of M-50 they simply "added" the M-50 sign, and left the sign for M-45 as it was. Maybe the fact that M-50 is a national road and M-45 a regional road (and the resulting lack of coordination between administrations) has something to do with it.

And about R-3, it's indeed a new tollway that complements the free one, A-3. Also R-2, R-4, R-5 where built to complement A-2, A-4 and A-5. But this involves more signaling problems: if for example you come from A-5 (from Bajdajoz) and you want to take M-40 eastbound, you see: "R-5 Badajoz" only because that is the first highway you meet in that direction.

Also in Italy we drive on the right but no-entry signs are placed in both sides of an one-way street.

I guess the upper means "give priority to traffic on the road you will meet" and the lower pedestrian crossing.
Although very differents they aren't impossible to understand to foreigns.
