The Nordic countries use crossed-out signs for prohibitions.

Norway/Denmark:


Sweden/Finland/Iceland:

Probably Brazil wont change Red Circle sign(Mandatory) for Blue circle sign(Mandatory), its very expensive and already its standardized across whole country.

Imagine if this red circle sign meaning forbidden:

Yes, it can be dangerous, if a European decides to drive in Brazil or vice-versa.


If anyone is interested, here you can see a draft of new signs in Slovenia. If approved, we'd get the Italo-Albanian "blue motorway" (= expressway) sign.

To Europeans, it is elementary: if it is circled red, it is a prohibition.
Europeans should not drive in Brazil then.

I would be totally duck up outside Europe

btw. slovak signs

I think, nothing to emphasize. The newest change is that yellow signs are temporal, what confuses me a bit when I am in former Yugoslav countries. I have never seen IP 29 in my life and I really have not got any clue about purpose of that

In Wikipedia the sign is captioned "úniková zóna" which according to Google Translate means "escape lane".

I think that for an European is easier to get accustomed with the different Brazilian\American signs rather than with the different driving direction in UK, Ireland, Australia,...

Ireland has American-style signs and different driving direction.

That's a convenient way to indicate that there is a national border - the existence of which is still a painful thing in a political sense.

I know this may belong to "border-crossing" thread, but it just make me ask - there are no border checks between UK and IRL? Because on google streetview I have not found any.

I did not mean it literally. You have local destination signs with yellow background. In Slovakia, destinations with yellow background are designed for detour due to roadworks

It's a mistake, or really the colour of traffic lights was "reverted"?

In Italy it was indroduced in 1992, before we used this:

Can still be found, albeit very rarely, in some very small road in the countryside or private parking lot.
Also East Germany (DDR) used this

I also see the old "car on blue background" besides green and blue motorways. Which roads would those be? Do you have an example?

I don't know if they were reverted or if it is a mistake.
