They might think it's a shooting range
the US uses way too much text on their signs. Symbols might be confusing you know

Yeah, how many non-Hungarians would know "nyugat" means "west"?

Probably only you and now me. But, that sign is in Hungarian, so it's normal if cardinal directions are in Hungarian as well.

Heh, thank you Chris! I was thinking about the meaning of the word last summer when I was waiting for metro at Nyugati pályaudvar station(Budapest Western railway station).

PS: Remind me Chicken McNuggets

PPS: TERN in Österreich is good and useful. I`ll be glad to see that on Slovak motorways.

This sign in Austria is very popular. English-speaking tourists love it!

Man, that's a very bad combination of signs and words on the picture from Austria.

I happened to do some research about Hungarian motorways a week ago, using Hungarian wikipedia, and they list exit names.

nyugat = west
dél = south
kelet = east
észak = north

If you don't know what nyugat means, you probably won't even think it's something like a cardinal direction.

They are not broken. Try to right-click the images with the names of the fonts and then chose "save target as..." then you get the zipped folders.

This is frustrating... the fonts seem to have errors in them and won't install properly. Am I the only one experiencing this? Is there anywhere else I can get them?

Is TERN font also available for download?

It looks good, just W and w look strange to me.
