Again, IMHO you fail to provide an universal argument why exonyme is better than the official name (the "de facto" name used by most population). Why exactly is "Mailand" better than "Milano"?

So far what I understand from your posts is that you think exonymes are ok, because they are easy for your people. That is not an universal argument, because such mentality is no longer present in Europe. The Dutch removed "Keulen", probably the French removed "Londres", but I still see "Luxemburg" in my area. Somebody is a bit behind in the process.

That is a no-parking sign. The one with the cross means "no stopping at all". So at the sign above, you are allowed to stop briefly, but not to park for a longer period.

In Spain the same but... two minutes.

Fine is absolutely different, so all policemen will stay two minutes waiting for the do not stop fine...

In our country it is no parking only stopping, where stopping means the time needed to get on/off the car as quickly as possible.

Then it is a bad czech, because in czech it is actually just one word "neparkovat", if there is a t with an apostrophe, then it is slovak: "neparkovať".

The same than in Spain. Driver must be inside the car (for if example, an emergency comes and has to run again as fast as possible). It is allowed only for leaving or getting things, getting on or off people (it is a very usual question on driving test).
Two minutes allowed. After those two minutes it is considered you have parked the car, even if you are there. This is the reason why policemen will always wait two minutes before putting a fine...

Downside: it may look like they're two different cities that way. (on the other hand, France often uses "Metz - Nancy" on the signs, which are actually two different cities.

So, it must be Slovak then. Sorry, but I am sometimes confused with our Southern neighbours' languages. I suppose it's actually just one word (don;t remember now) and I (kind of) polonised it, using space.

Yes, it is verry funny to drive through Hungary without a GPS, you have to stop before every sign and read that extreme long and extreme hard-to-read signs, like the last time I saw a sing pointing to some village that was around 30cm wide and 5m long! Sorry, but I did not remember the name.

It's nice Hungarian sign makers learned hot to write the name in two rows, now they should only learn how to spell Banská Bystrica correctly.
