Slightly OT, but I once saw a table with new signs introduced recently in Slovakia, including your version of STOP FALSCH! Do you know where can I find it?

Denmark got that same sign in dec '08. Vejdirektoratet calls it "the austrian hand". In Denmark it has the text "STOP" the hand and a subplate that says "VEND OM". That means "turn around"

Edit: I found a pic

accident

But if you look at that sign, it looks like a film set for the next James Bond film with stunt drivers

It looks to me the Austrians have changed more than just the font. The design of some of that directional signage is new for me...

3 different arrows...
It looks just as messy as the old design did.

I really hope they stick to one font size for all motorway signs.

is TERN font only austrian or rather EU innitiative?

Is there any project / plans to unify road signage in the EU?

TERN looks much, much better that the previous Austrian font, although it has some 'weird' feel. It may be caused by the shape of 'i', but we need to see more examples in real life

Does other design principles remain unchanged? Austria should make some effort to refresh the design a little, especially in overhead signage.

Actually I like the old Austrian font (as vell as the German and Hungarian). The little "tail" on the letter l (as you find in TERN and Transport a.o. I know) and the high and slim 0, both on directional signage as well as on the simple speed limit sign. How visible the old font is I would not know though, I ve only traveled by train in this country.
