Polish signs before rail-crossing. We have 4 level crossing categories.









As you can see in some cases we post so called Saint Andrew's Cross.

Before single rail crossing:



Before multiple rail one:

We have this signs which indicate exit - number of exit depends on km of motorway

at A6 i think it is also indicated on those signs of coming close to exit because those signs exist only on A6 (since there is another concessionaire).

btw, what do Slovak signs D2 and D3 mean?

D means "diaľnica" = motorway. It`s like yours "autocesta". In Slovak language you can also use "autostráda", but that is already not used.

btw, this is our sign for motorway and number of motorway

Are both these 500 m signs in use? Why does one of them have an arrow (fork ) and the other dont?
Actually I prefer the first one. It looks quite clear and neat

I see, sorry.

exact explanation for these signs in Slovak-

Quote:
Značka Okruh (D2) a Zmena smeru okruhu (D3) označujú okruh zriedený obchádzke obce alebo jej časti. Ak je zriadených viac okruhov, označujú sa v spodnej časti značky rímskymi číslicami postupne od stredu obce. Podporne sa používajú aj pruhy rovnakej farby na stĺpoch verejného osvetlenia a podobne.
and for people who are not Slavic

shortly in English : This sign (D2) indicate bypass of city or village. Sign with an arrow indicating change of direction of bypass - sign D3.

D2 and D3

Yes, both of these signs are in use. The first one is used last metres before exit, as you can see there is 500 m . In the first part of sign is name of exit. In the second are cities on this (exit) direction. In the third is tourist place, and in the fourth is cultural place, in this case- castle.

Second sign is also near exit, but there are another exit on the motorway and directions for drivers orientation.

Btw, sign with an arrow is totally bad.

Do you have in your country special signs for the bascule bridge? I mean something like signs near railroads.

Because we have (probably) one bridge like that and in Slovakia we don`t have signs for it. Maybe sign (with ship, not plane ) like this will be good -

cannal under the bridge, in the background is capital of Slovakia-Bratislava

In the United States, we use the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) of the Federal Highway Administration (FWA).

The 2003 edition of the manual was just revised and updated in the 2009 edition, wehich the states will have 2 years to adopt.

To view the manual in HTML format, click here:
