Citizens are not forbidden to possess them. There is a car factory in North Korea named Pyonghwa which was made with the south Korean investment and has a maximum capacity of 10000 cars per year. And yellow license plates are for private cars. The problem is though, the incomes are too low and the cars too expensive for the majority 90% of the population.

Not necessarily - take Hong Kong for example.

Factory is to expand to the capacity of 100000 units per year

That road can handle 24.000 vehicles per hour, 12 times the amount of cars produced in North Korea per year

You can easly use it as a parking lot, and still have plenty of space for traffic. The only problem is: how the hell do you get that many cars there?

What if it becomes one? what if the number of cars in the North suddenly increase and all the main roads become full with commuters jammed in their cars? (A bored daydreamer's thoughts... )

North Korea has always fascinated me... always. I find it fascinating that they ACTUALLY have motorways given the fact that from what I have seen there are not a lot of cars in North Korea.

Really interesting pics and a really interesting thread.

A true overhead road sign with a good picture quality

What it says is from left to right:
Wonsan 200 Km - Geumkangsan (Mount Kumgang) 305 Km/Kaesong 160 Km/Sariwon 200 Km - Haeju 360 Km
