I don't see any safety issue about that. It still looks ok and bridge is wide enough. Expansion joint did its work.

Not exactly very recent (Mar 2012) but frightening nonetheless.

You have got to be f*cking kidding me... It's like a freaking bingo card with 7 road numbers and on top of that also 7 names. I'd have to park on the shoulder so I'd have enough time to understand the sign...

Just had to think about the debate that went on in the Euro 2012 thread not so long ago...

A BBC show Euro 2012: Stadiums of Hate... but the map is hilarious.


and for the fun anyway.

Like the bottom map. Upper map is either wrong, or I live in the Czech Republic now, but nobody told me.

With all due respect, you shouldn't be driving if you can't understand that sign.
