Turn left for the Secret Nuclear Bunker and don't tell anyone that you know this from me. It's supposed to be a secret

Well… I'm Spanish and I have no idea of German and I understand all of those symbols and requirements. One for park-meter, other for "no parking" (but is allowed to stop the car), other for "no parking" because is a private parking space…

…plus, the park-meter spaces zone symbol is not the same as the Spanish version… and the system is no the same between E and CH. When I stayed in Swissland, the french part, I remember to use a system based on the number position of the space you use -ex: 1 chf to space 16-.

If you think what happen in Europe if all the traffic sings are like USA, without symbols, you should need 4 languages in a single country to say "no parking but is allowed to stop the car here for a while"…

Well here we do everything in at least 3 languages:

This one I like, looks friendly:


It realy means that worker-trucks might enter the trafficlanes from the right.

This one is mean:

Meaning: passway for disabled people this way...

This one is complicated, but only for Debt Bathers:

We sometimes have a sign that says "TRUCKS ENTERING HIGHWAY" that we can actually understand.

The first one appears to be a roadworks sign. I think it means tat trucks are entering the roadway from the works area.

The second one should just have the handicap logo and the arrow for direction. Putting "Disabled Access" underneath the logo along with the arrow would also work.

The third one, I'm not even sure what they are trying to say. I think it might be at a swimming pool, going by instruction 1.
