This is an Israeli plate, so technically it's Asian


About the oval identifiers - in theory they are required everywhere outside EU, but in practice in neighboring countries nobody enforces this. It would take a cop in very bad mood to fine you for a missing oval.

I drive a car with pre-EU plates without any country identifiers. I have an PL oval, but it's often obscured by rear window wiper (it was placed there by the Renault dealership ) and I've never run into any problems because of that, also in Switzerland.

In Switzerland it's definitely valid, also in Norway afaik.

Anyone have more info on this change?

Interestingly, the City of Green Bay, WI already uses multiple signal heads on their overhead masts and - true to its being in Wisconsin - they're horizontal, not vertical.

Actually, the two doesn't mean the same. In Denmark we have the first sign aswell. It basically means that you cannot go through the intersection, whereas motorists from the right probably can enter the road (thus, entering isn't prohibited, as motorists from certain directions can enter it).

I cannot find an example of the exact sign, but if you go to google earth, activate street view, find the intersection Ringstedgade and Borgerdiget/Jernbanegade in Roskilde, and find the streetview for Ringstedgade, southbound just before the intersection, you will see three signs. One is "Right turn prohibited", another is "Left turn prohibited" and the last is "Through traffic only". If you then look at the crossing road (Borgerdiget/Jernbanegade), you will notice that not one of them has a "No entering" sign. Reason is that the southbound Ringstedgade before the intersection sees little traffic, while Ringstedgade Northbound sees a lot of traffic. Therefore the southbound has a very short green light period to allow the Northbound single priority in the intersection, and to make the traffic flow, only through traffic is allowed.

That subject has been beat to death, I understood it it perfectly well a few pages back.
