Few days ago I wrote about Traffic safety and road conditions on Polish roads
I shared with you a video about warning signs you may see on the roads in Poland. Today a little information about Prohibition signs.
No entry – zakaz wjazdu
No entry for unauthorized vehicles. Usually shown as a red circle with a white rectangle across its face.
No parking – zakaz parkowania
Amongst one of the most familiar signs, this sign is used where parking should be prohibited.
No overtaking – zakaz wyprzedzania
Either overtaking is prohibited for all vehicles or certain kinds of vehicles only (e.g. trucks, motorcycles, etc…) In the USA, this is usually phrased as “no passing zone”
No right, left or U-turn – zakaz skrętu w prawo, lewo lub zawracania
Either for all vehicles or with some exceptions (emergency vehicles, buses). These are usually to speed up traffic through an intersection or due to street cars or other right of ways or if the intersecting road is one-way. Indicated near-universally by an arrow making the prohibited turn overlaid with a red circle with an angular line crossing it.
Take a look at the signs and what they mean:
Do następnego razu… (Till next time…)
