Sometimes driving in other countries is easy, sometimes not so much. One of the most difficult aspects are the road signs and sometimes the signs are so different from what we’re accustomed to that they’re difficult to understand. If you don’t know the language, you have to do your best to understand them based on the diagrams or pictures on the sign, context of their placement and what other cars are doing; but sometimes those translations can be pretty comical.
There are many sign “banks” like these at intersections. The traffic lights just aren’t long enough to read them all (even if I could read the language!).
I assume this is a maximum and minimum speed limit sign, thinking weight has something to do with it…
Highway direction signs are pretty clear-cut, at least when they also have English.
…though those directions can get more complicated…
…and sometimes, really complicated (especially without English).
Others you can kind of figure out. While this seems to be each of the lanes, what each lane designation means is unknown to me. That green arrow must mean something.
There’s that green arrow again. It seems to correspond with lighted green arrows in the right lane, which sometimes have a red “X.” Pretty clear that lane is sometimes usable, sometimes not.
You need to be careful here. If you eat while you fuel your car, you may need First Aid!
Or worse, if you eat while you fuel your car here, you’ll get really bad gas which could distract other drivers!
This must be a popular site, the police enforce photography.
I guess all Korean policeman aren’t stellar. In this area, their enforcement is just “average”!
This picture isn’t very good, but it’s a sad commentary on melting snowmen becoming rain.
It appears that you are required to unplug your car before traveling on this road.
Yellow cars are headed for the most excitement!
Do not dress alike and smile…or travelers are required to dress alike and be happy? Or it applies only if you wear green seat belts…
Not a sign, but I’d sure hate this job!
Oh, these guys aren’t real…
Or are they?
Do you have a better caption for any of these? Leave it in a comment!
