Why writing too much text when there is this simple, easy to read sign?

People who rely on satnav tend to ignore a lot of signs.

Usually in cases like this there have been problems with oversized vehicles taking such back roads based on GPS.

This summer I was in a Spanish town called Candelario, and I wanted to go up a mountain road for a view. This destination was not signed, so I had to rely on GPS. But it took me on a very narrow street instead of the slightly longer main road.

Seriously, what car without necessity of being accompanied by special vehicle is wider than 5 m.

Percentage should be on the main sign, above black triangle (road):

Spotted while driving along the Po river in Turin. So sorry for bad quality.

It's a sign of the old Highway Code of 1959.
It's extremly rare actually that were use a mulitple vehicle prohibition in Italy (it's usually used a single signal for each category). It's a pity, because the actual new Highway Code can prescribe this type of sign, but very rarely used.

Currently these signs are used:

(but they're very rare, I have never spotted the last two)
The sign in Turin is probably handmade and unofficial, like the well-known "no rickshaw" signs in Lignano or the various "beware of ducks", "beware of frogs" and "beware of... prostitutes". (I think that all of them are in the previous pages of this thread)

No no, they are not handmade. Corso Regina Margherita is still full of those, if I have the chance I'm gonna take some pictures.

I would think the need to prohibit hand-rickshaw traffic is pretty low even in the south of Italy

In some seaside towns they're regularly rented by tourists during summer.

I confirm, and they can be found not only in Corso Regina.
Those signs are related to the peculiar layout of Turin's "corsi" (avenues): typically there are two rows of trees, that divide the section of the street in three parts. The side ones ("controviali") are for slow traffic (about 30 km/h)and have intersections with every street nearby, the central one ("viale centrale") is for faster traffic (depending on the characteristics of the road, 50 or 70 km/h) and has intersections only with main streets.
The sign showed above simply forbids vehicles that are too slow from entering the central carriageway. I'm glad they use the compact way to do it, instead of a jungle of signs at every main intersection.
Since some people seem to lack a proper level of self-preservation, they are badly needed: in the last two months I have spotted a cyclist in the central section twice.
