I think the issue with the Brazilian signs is that elsewhere, a round sign with a red border means you're limited or prohibited from doing something, not that you're required to do something.
These pictures will explain it:









Probably the most confusing signs ever for Europeans:

We have two types of "no entry" sign in Europe in general:

This mean "No entry" as well, but the reason is the wrong end of one way street.

The beginning of one way street is marked by this one


Before the intersection with one way street (its beginning), drivers are usually being informed about that fact by this one (or its mirrored alternative)

(means "one way road after turning right")

You probably showed the Brazilian alternative of this

meaning mandatory "turn right" or "right only".

Actually, it means "no vechicles" or "all vehicles prohibited", which includes bikes too.

The Brazilian signs have the same color-coding for both prohibited directions and obligatory directions. It's better to have them red and blue respectively, although some of the signs shown above are superfluous.

Exactly, thanks for the correction. There is often an aditional sign below.

It is pretty much confusing. Bypassing sign is European like whereas others have red outline. And the one with green outline, wtf?

But given the European signs, I really don't understand, why the "turning left/right/around prohibited" and "no honking" signs are crossed out. All other prohibitory sings have red outline only. Regarding logics, Brazilian "dirreción obligada" should have exact opposed meaning in Europe.

I was reminded of my 2011 visit to the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucerne last night watching the US TV show "The Amazing Race." The show has teams racing around the world, having to complete tasks along the way. Last night they were in Switzerland and one of the tasks was here. The task was a simple one, the teams just had to do a calculation using the distances for cities shown on the distance signs. (This is the building that has exhibits about cars and roads.)

Holy shit! That's lots of signs ! Are those from the replacement of worn out signs ? Or made just for the building?
