With all due respect, it's another ****-up by the Highways Agency. Road signs are supposed to be clear, with clear lane guidance and directionals. Everyone knows that the UK and Austria have the worst road signs in Europe when it comes to these criteria.

Italian signage lacks that too... you'll never know if your lane will detach or if you'll have to exit the road to follow your direction.

Although I've heard about the problems regarding the signage on Austrian roads even before I've been there, I must say that I didn't have any problem with the signage although I drove some hundreds of km in Austria. Anyway, I admit that signs in Netherlands for example are clearer, but it's not that bad in Austria.

Come to Romania and you will see this:



Be careful! Pothole!



"Congratulations!"... no it's not -shopped....

Grammar... it should be with letter , not (ţnchis = closed):



Ok, this are rare, but they still do exist...

In youtube's webpage they say: "These are the last moments alive of this bus driver".

Chrochtejte si i v penzi - Knoren ook in jullie pension. . Well done, now its official.

Chrochtat - Knoren (to grunt)

Gracht (city canal) in Dutch - pronounced very similar to how would you pronounce a "chrocht" (a grunt, sound done by a pig) in Czech.

Thus its a double joke on the way Dutch sounds to the Czechs (as grunting) and on having very fat pension as a pig thats grunting with pleasure.

There's is absolutely nothing wrong with a the sign. Its legible, has clear lane guidance and is informative. Everyone knows that road signs in Britain are perfectly acceptable.

And I was overexaggerating (sorry if I spelled that wrong...). I mean, it doesn't take me 2 mins. to get the signs, but it still takes me pretty long. But that can also be due to the fact tht I'm not used to GB-signs

What would have been your first choice for London if it came to occupy the most appropriate lane? Don't think to long, just look at the sign briefly, as if you were driving there (60 miles speed limit)

Right lane, though looking at the sign further, the middle lane would be more appriopriate (unless overtaking).
