The sign says 2 km to that interchange, while it should be 30 km (at least that's what Matchut says). On the second photo there's canola on the road.

This sign is real and correct. Good luck to any kid hit at 80km/h...

Does Australia (QLD) have the world's fastest school zones? :P

Not really:

http://www.remontees-mecaniques.net/...rtage-522.html

This one is used mainly to transport materials to a dam, and leads to a small network of roads not connected to the rest of the world. The other cabin is for passenegers and opened to public, but the freight cabin is only for freight (up to nearly 20 tonnes).

It arrives here: http://maps.google.ch/maps?f=q&sourc...09602&t=h&z=17

And starts from the end of the road to the south.

Translation:
Caution
Gipsy children on the road


A little explanation: Due to the works of a new HSL in Galicia, lots of trucks started to use this road, which is close to a gipsy settlement. That road is the place where these gipsy children used to play. The sign was put by one of the inhabitants of that settlement, and they seem to be satisfied because the trucks drive slower. The municipality, however, wants to get it out of there because it's xenophobic.

Latelly in Attiki Odos, the motorway which connects Airport to Athens city, it was that incident at least twice: a horse to run in the middle of the road, because of a farm nearby; that horse seems that escaped from that farm...

A Slovenian car in downtown Zagreb, in construction zone where no cars are allowed....not for everyone, though.

I wonder why he/she entered into tram line, and especially a u/c part of that line...

It's a regular road with tram tracks. You're normally allowed to drive there. Of course, at the time of the picture, while road works were going on, automobile traffic was prohibited on that part. But trams can still use (and need to use) that section, which means that no physical barrier can be installed.

So, you have a driver who doesn't pay attention and is used to taking that road....

PS: you can observe this when one-way street patterns are changed for whatever reasons. Surprising how many people don't look at signs and drive down the wrong way, just because that's what they've always been doing.
