RDS, the Radio Data System is a system that can transmit digital information to your car radio and display them. In the Netherlands, they are often used to transmit the name of the radio station, the artist playing or speed camera locations. It is called Radio Broadcast Data System in North America.

No, I've meant this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_Data_System
Quote:
Radio Data System, or RDS, is a communications protocol standard for embedding small amounts of digital information in conventional FM radio broadcasts. The RDS system standardises several types of information transmitted, including time, station identification and programme information.
which includes:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_Announcement
Quote:
TA, TP
Traffic Announcement
, Traffic Programme The receiver can often be set to pay special attention to this flag and e.g. stop the tape/pause the CD or retune to receive a Traffic bulletin. The TP flag is used to allow the user to find only those stations that regularly broadcast traffic bulletins whereas the TA flag is used to stop the tape or raise the volume during a traffic bulletin.
That is how I receive important traffic information during driving, because I almost never listen to radio stations, I just listen MP3 music. Car radios and radio stations here use RDS already from early 90ies.

edit: others have answered already

This is the most weird stuff on the Slovak roads what I have ever seen. You have to move round on this crossroad - if you will follow the signs.

Workers just ignore so normal laws. There`s common sense enought to understand how bad are these signs.

Majú to v paži no čo. (nevedel som to slušne povedať po anglicky )

EDIT: , I just wanted to say- a workers just doesn`t care about that
