I found it because of it's SC4 highways thread. I was googling something with highways in SC4 and a pic from the SC4 thread came up. Then i saw the rest of the H&A section, and registered a month or so later.

Well I was googling for highrise projects in Riga, and a picture of Rigas future skyline showed up and it was from Riga development thread (that was in 2006), I was folowing all the Latvian threads as a guest, but only after two years decided to join SSC.

Guys, one issue doesn't let me sleep at night any more. I would post this in a specific country's thread but since it's about two (actually more than that) countries I'm sure some will be able to help.

It's about the sliproads in UK vs. Germany (and probably other countries which use one or another way of marking the lanes).

Here is how sliproads are usually done in UK motorways:

...and in Germany

NOTE, I did not attempt to be precise with those paintings (like angles, distances etc.), it's just an indicative scheme.

So WHY are there different ways of painting sliproads and which way is better?

This is similar question, which one has the best road markings or best signage. Independent opinion is impossible, because some like this and other like that.

I take it that traffic in that first example drives on the left? Two lanes just dumping on the freeway would be very dangerous.

The first example is called a "taper". The second one is a regular acceleration/deceleration lane. I prefer the latter in situation where you enter the freeway, but I don't really mind the exiting situation, as long as the offramp is long enough to decelerate.

The Netherlands is sometimes a bit over the top with this; a rural exit with first a 300 m decelerating lane, then becoming a 500 m ramp before you hit the intersection.
