Swiss cantonal borders:
(photos taken in Spring 2012)

1. Canton of St. Gallen -> Canton of Schwyz, coming from Uznach (SG).
Border is on the middle of the bridge. At the left, mounted on the small concrete wall, the red Schwyz emblem can be seen.



2. Canton of Zurich -> Canton of Zug, in the village of Sihlbrugg that is bisected by the cantonal border.

Interesting set of signs: end of all restrictions and just 50-100 metres after speed limitation.

Its a 120 km/h limit after a tunnel (limit 100 km/h). The end of all rectrictions is easy to find after a tunnel (that in Spain are very rectricted in speed, at least 20 km/h less).

It's the general speed limit. Plus, these pictures are taken after a tunnel, and Spanish tunnels usually have other restrictions apart from lower speed limits (i.e. higher distance between vehicles).

I do understand it very well, however, when "end of all restriction" sign is applied there is no need to put national speed limit sign again. A driver should know where he/she happened to drive and what speed is allowed on road. It seems to be slightly over reacted.

A county border sign in southern Slovakia (county has about 20% of Hungarian population, so the sign got "bilinguefied" in some civilian action).

Is this the only state exclave within the United States?
