When I've been on Balkan, I really liked the way of signage. They repeat every sign at every exit even it was defined in general or were duplicated. Even on motorways (e.g. in Serbia), there was a small 120 kph sign after every exit.

In contrast, we have a very stupid law in Slovakia: It is prohibited and even fined to duplicate the sign.

For example: If you are in inhabited area with general speed limit 50 kph, it is prohibited to post a sign with 50 kph speed limit. It is all sick.

The most stupid is the bypass of Bratislava. There is a general speed limit for motorway in inhabited area (I guess we are the only country in Europe with that defined) and the bypass is signed by motorway sign with the city entrance sign. The speed limit is 90 kph and it is not displayed there at all. The lenght is about 20 km in total.

Btw. Why do I have the forum in spanish language?

Same thing is in Croatia, 130 sign after every entry to motorway to remind you.

Yes, I liked this too.
In Germany for example, also on non-motorway roads (at least here in Bavaria), if there was a restriction previous, you have a sign after every intersection, if the restriction is canceled, you have the canceling sign. You can drive more relaxed not having to think every time "now I passed an intersection, now there is no more limitation"

Sometimes I miss the cancellation sign and keep on toodling as everyone else flies past me...

In Spain, IIRC, the driver must be reminded about the speed limits each 1 minute. So, on motorways, you'll find signs that say "120" every 2 km, or after each entrance ramp, whichever is closer.

Also, on non-motorways, as in Germany, you're reminded after each town/crossing with an "End of all restrictions" sign. The most common scheme is something like this:

(Do not overtake)
(80)
(50)
[Villarriba]
...
[/Villarriba]
(/) or (/80)

No silent treatment. Between yesterday and today I travelled Pescara-Brescia-Turin and had little time online. Plus, I've got nothing really to add to the current topic of the thread.

That's nice. Every time I drive in Romania I curse at the lack of signage (or bad signage).

While I was in Italy, I also found the signage pretty bad. For example there was a construction site on a motorway, speed limited to 80, no one obeyed the speed limit, I did, then no cancellation sign when speed limit is back to 130, so I had no idea (since people where already driving 130)...

Sometimes it happens... I don't find construction site signage all that bad in Italy... for example, I think lane closures are signed better in Italy than in Germany. When I was there I found myself at the end of a closed lane more than once, having to come to a full stop and hoping someone would let me merge.

But you're right, nobody here respects speed limits, be they normal or construction site related. I do, but I think the 60 km/h ones are more dangerous than useful.

The German system of signing lane closures is not that bad if Germans would only merge in turn at the end. Which I must say has gone a lot better in recent years. I do feel strongly about using both lanes when queuing and merge at the end. Problem with Germans is that when there is no queue they move to the far end and merge in the last minute, creating these queues in the first place.

I don't know what geače means... maybe gaće which means underpants

Što se ovim čini is a local dialect... roughly translated something like What should I do with this?
