What impressed me most, that they are all so clean. Over here most 'wear' either graffiti or various stickers. Great as well the first picture; nearly unthinkable over here. Must feel good living there. Please have a nice new week.

Great signs, the last one is the best with it's reflection.

The top one is weird. I wonder why they need so many signs so close together.

I like the photo with 7 destinations pointing to the right!

Such a funny collection (except for the car about to drown).

Solar powered? Nice idea.

I love this post. Aren't signs so much fun. Sometimes you wonder who thinks them up. but again we need them because someone has to tell us what to do. haha!! MB

Should be easy to spot the top one!:)

A nice collection, and I guess i would have needed a very good map-reader if I should drive a car in Italy!:)
Thinking about it..... no I don`t think I would have had the nerv to even try....

I remember when I first moved to France I could not figure out what those "no blue" signs meant. Someone finally told me that they mean "no parking". But I could never figure out why blue represents parking. Ah well!!!
