I like "warning wildlife" signs that specify what wildlife you might encounter - moose, boars etc. Here in CZ they always have deer on them; although deer is arguably the most common animal to encounter on the roads here.

BTW. what does the first on from the left, lowest line, in -Valentino-'s post mean? Forbidden to turn left or right if your car is an octagonal black hole? :-D

It's the Canadian "No stopping" sign. Equivalent of this

Accident. It's a temporary sign put up where there's an accident.

Especially coming from a thread named 'Signs you'll never see on the road' or something like that in the AARoads Forums. That thread is full of things like 'Right land must turn left' or a sponsored speed limit. Anyway, I managed to troll the troll .

Finland was using this sign until 1971:



It was widely known as "Black Hand". A common trivia question was whether it was the right hand or the left one.

Does EXIT SPEED LIMIT exist anywhere in Europe? Can't find any unlike here in North America.

Not an explicit speed limit, but tight exits usually have a recommended lower speed like this.

The right one, of course.

Belgium does have actual speed limits (not just recommended speeds) for ramps: https://goo.gl/maps/fuYuX
