I don't think it's USA, especially because of the two roundabouts at the intersection...

Sometimes you shouldn't look at the motorway and their intersections, you should look around... and it will 'easy' if you start a search in Google about the place and the details...

Only give Country + Region please. The country will be very easy to guess.

Geez, couldn't you have chosen a more ambiguous place?

Let's just say the city name begins with the letter B.

Don't think so. Why would you think spanish cities have a grid sprawl, they are always dense and have no low density sprawl whatsoever. It's clearly USA.

I don't know never been there

Edit: It was just a blind guess, the first US city with B that came up to my mind... But I didn't see anything like this on Google Earth there...
Looked also Baltimore, Bakersfield and Buffalo, but couldn't find it...

Those are not American signs, let alone Boston signs. And Boston's an older city whose streets (except for a few neighborhoods) are not laid out on a grid. In fact, there's a joke that downtown Boston must have been laid out by a drunken cow.

They're certainly not standard: directional signs are white on green, in almost all circumstances.

Unless you're getting into the question of whether "American" means "U.S." or the whole hemisphere....
