Lol!!

there are someones more like this one.

Reason?. You can pay town hall a fee to reserve parking area for a reason. In this case, for school buses. They have booked just entrances and exits for pupils in order to let buses stopping there.


For supermarkets (near a supermarket to unload freights) I have seen 11 to 14 and 16 to 19 monday to saturday or so

Oh, sorry, I should've translated the whole sentence:
Quote:
Fin de obligación de alumbrado de corto alcance
S-24

Indica el final de un tramo en que es obligatorio el alumbrado de cruce o corto alcance y recuerda la posibilidad de prescindir de éste, siempre que no venga impuesto por circunstancias de visibilidad, horario o iluminación de la vía.
It marks the end of a stretch in which low beam lights are compulsory and reminds drivers of the possibility of turning them off, unless it's mandatory due to circumstances such as visibility, time of the day or illumination.

So, if that sign wasn't there, low beam lights would still be compulsory.


Usually, when there are several tunnels in a short stretch, this sign is located only after the last tunnel:


For instance, this stretch has 3 tunnels: https://www.google.es/maps/dir/43.18...b1!4m2!4m1!3e0

But this sign is located only after the last one: https://www.google.es/maps/@43.13506...7i13312!8i6656

(See the exit of the first tunnel - no sign. Exit of the second tunnel - no sign either)

In Poland the law is so that only the road sings which regulate the priority of crossing the intersection don't apply when the traffic lights are active. So the "you have to drive forward" sign would apply anyway, even if the traffic lights work.

How is it in Hungary?

If it's the same... Maybe the road across has been closed for traffic, at least for those who want to turn right/left from here (at the same time there is some traffic on it) - but someone forgot to hide or disable the right-turn signal.

Prefectoral bans/prohibitions (mostly for unauthorized parking) on private areas are all too common in Zurich (and all of Switzerland). The one I caught here is special in the sense that it was issued in 1947, and is fully effective 70 years after.

The indicated fine of 50 francs of this one must have been a lot heavier back then, though

speaking about the traffic signs, have you ever seen this sign placed somewhere? (France excluded, I know they use it)



i also find its existance quite obsolete or unneccessary afaik all countries apply right side rule on such crossroads.

In German villages, it can be frequently seen to warn drivers when right-hand priority applies, but the road to the right is easily overlooked.

It is redundant in the legal sense, but can help prevent accidents nevertheless.

Yes.

In Poland it's rare, but not uncommon.

There are trials to apply this type of intersection for traffic calming. In such a situation this sign is simply a must, because otherwise the drivers tend to think that the bigger, wider, more important road has priority, forgetting about the right-hand rule.

In a place with traffic lights - and the one from my link is without traffic lights

With traffic lights, at a T-shaped intersection: https://goo.gl/maps/Ldz9rY6xsHv

Maybe not an unusual road sign, but an unusual road intersection: https://goo.gl/maps/3QsE28iGh8P2

8 inlets and the intersection is not a roundabout.

I though about that too. However, this sign might be used also for preventing drivers from driving too fast, as you would have to reduce your speed and check before entering the intersection (opposed to priority sign where you can drive as quickly as you want as you don't have to take care for other traffic).

When I was in USA I have noticed that they use a lot the all-way stop sign/intersection. Everyone has to come to a complete stop and the one who arrived first can go first. If I haven't seen it with my own eyes, I couldn't have believed how practical and how good this can work (on intersections with fairly low amount of traffic though).

They don't (didn't) want foreign pedestrians to use their passageway as shortcut to get around the corner ...

Wait, all way stops are not common in Europe? It's the most common intersection in Canada and the US, easily. It's so basic I thought it was used essentially everywhere.
