The biggest problem is that they are placed on all interchanges between MKAD and M-roads. They are all over the place.

but in many cases people will much easier orientate themselves after Lexus showroom than after Rublevskoe shosse. actually, car showrooms are very popular as orientation points among people.

Ah, if you want to see a city with their sponsored roadsigns, you must visit Bandung, Indonesia

This one is directing you to a Hotel:

I saw some strange sign on Slovenian highways. It's rectangular, with red background and black-and-white flame. Does anyone know what does it means?

That sign announces red-colored short part of the crash barrier, which is easy to remove, so emergency vehicles can cross it fast. I don't know why it looks like that.

Indeed. The sidewalks in Philadelphia are a bit narrow, so if you're trying to get somewhere and you're stuck behind someone who's just strolling along chatting....

I have a recurrent urge to get a T-shirt made that says "If you can't walk and talk at the same time, either sit down or shut up!"
