Exactly, Kaesong is in the North. And they also don't use road numbers and latin script, as mentioned by Kaber. And the south korean flag is technically not an enemy flag as it was the only flag used by the government of the north and people of the south to oppose the US millitary occupation of the south.

So the sign just means that you cannot cross into NK by car?

At least not from this border. I think the border to Kaesong industrial zone, southwest of this location is open to bus tours, however.

The highways are so empty, I would love to go on that 10 lane road and do a bunch of donuts. And with a loud engine, too

The South Korean flag is a modified version of the old Korean flag being used until 1910 (Japanese annexation).

Denmark? LOL. I don't think even North Korea is creepy. countries like Bangeladesh or Nigeria where the density is so high are kinda creepy for me.

However most of those constructed do not follow all the motorway standards.

How many km of motorway has North Korea?

Note that there are just around 300.000 vehicles (estimated, and mainly military) for over 25 million inhabitants...

I wonder how many would be left if the border with South were to be open for anyone who wants to leave. South Korean law says that all northerners are entitled to stay if they can get there. I think it would be much worse than after reunification of Germany.

Unless a major economic development program takes place, simillar to one that took place in Germany after WWII or the one in South Korea (!) in 1980's.
And also for a 25000000 country a number of about 5 million cars would seem enough. Therefore it is not a hard goal to achieve.

It is if citizens are forbidden to possess them...

They have the road network to support a bunch of traffic, but not the parking infrastructure form what I can tell.

Let me remind you that high car ownership is a sign of a wealthy society and not the target in itself
