Mandatory sign in shape of warning one! "Zvonte!" (grammatically correct: Zvoňte) means "Ring!". The farther signs says "Traffic signs are posted on the left side!" (due to tram track). Btw. note the "bidirectional sign" Just have noticed! Welcome to England

World's longest "zebra" crossing?
Spotted in the main car parking of St. Moritz, CH.

Zebras are white, not yellow.

This would be considered a walkway, not a zebra crossing. They're like that in a lot of car parks. Here you can see several going through the Port of Dover...

Definitely don't see any of them anywhere near where I am, the highest PSL is 100 and the Americans are in miles And Europeans don't seem to know this thing aside from Germans at 130

I have seen them in Alberta, on roads with 110 limit, they put advisory 105 in some spots. But... it seems so trivial to have a 5 km/h difference...

Recommended speed 100 km/h in Slovenia (speed limit 130 km/h):



It isn't used often though.

Reccomended speed of 80 (instead of 130) due to wind on the viaduct over Cavazzo lake on A23 in Italy.

"Beware! Pedestrians, [walk] on the other side"




"On the other side of what", says me, walking on an alpine trail...

Mountain bikers also use this trail... but maybe rocks can't hit them. By the way, there are absolutely no rocks ahead, just a gentle grassy slope...

That's interesting, I have well known the green motorway signs, but never seen a green recommended-speed sign before ...
