The "for no reason" is debatable. As is the "it's perfectly clear."

Other countries do; see Chris's answer.

I think that depicted case was just a mistake. Signs that are not valid are often turned 90°, or covered up by canvas or crossed out by fluorescent contrast material (red tape put in X shape is used in Slovakia)

No, no, no! It's easier to just leave them standing there while you have an espresso.

I doublechecked, in Slovenia this is the rule: if you drive below half the speed limit, you must turn on all turn signals a.k.a. hazards.

I'm just curious: why did Serbia change its flag (or rather CoA) in 2010? The difference is very hard to notice, only if I zoom in I can see the different mimic of eagles and different structure of feather.

I asked the same question to myself.

CoA adopted in 2004 was revival of the old CoA of the Kingdom of Serbia from 1882. In 2010 they redesigned it, without any indication. Public opinion is divided, with majority in favour of 2004 CoA. Beaks of the doubled-headed eagle in 2010 looks like parrot's! However, new CoA is depicted on banknotes and coins since 2011, while 2004 version is still on personal documents and license plates. Both version flags can be seen.
Eagle in 2010 version looks like copy from the German CoA.
Obviously someone wanted to make money of this unnecessarily change...

On the left 2010 version, on the right 2004 version of the great CoA of Serbia:

Triple Slovenian victory in ski jumping in Sapporo. I'm expecting a wave of Japanese tourists here.

Chris, you're one of the two moderators listed in the general developments forum; what do you know about this?

Ah, so that's the reason my postcount dropped. I was wondering how that had happened

I guess it's not a good idea to post other peoples' license plates.

What is the difference of seeing a licence plate in reality or on photo

I have no idea what happened to that thread. I can't find it either, nor any explanation what caused its disappearance.
