There are many town names that sound funny in foreign languages.
Cona (Italy) means **** in Portoguese.
Pula (Croatia, but there is also a Pula in Sardinia) means dick in Rumanian.
Senj (Croatia) means breast in Italian (with i instead of j but the pronunciation is the same).
And everybody know what they have in Austria near Salzburg.

In that case they mounted the traffic light upside down. It can't get more Belgium than that

The point was another. In new roads they usually build roundabouts or grade-separated interchanges, not at-grade junctions with traffic lights.

no, in this case J isn't read as I. Senj is read as Segn in italian (if gn can stand at the end of a word, but you know what i mean).

Ritoznoj is marvelous
