What @MandelSoft explains (traffic lights on the left side of multiple lane roads), in the case of Spain (probably in lots os other countries) is not just to help the signals visibility but it has a meaning and its placement is mandatory.

On multiple lanes roads on Spain, the signal placed next to the right shoulder ONLY APPLIES to the rightmost lane. The other lanes follow the rules of the signals placed next to the left shoulder. And that applies to ANY signal, included traffic lights.

There's a clear example near where I work and that affected another co-worker. There's an speed radar on a 2-lane per direction road, and a 60km/h signal a few meters before. My colleague received a fine of that radar because he was driving near 80km/h. But a lawyer helped him to cancel the fine because in the image is clear he was driving on the left side of the road and the left 60km/h signal on that place was missing for a lot of time (only the right one was in place). So, in fact, legally he was allowed to drive up to 80km/h in that point of the road. Road maintenance installed the missing signal several months later; in the meantime, anybody who knows well that law detail could avoid those speed fines (if they were caught driving on the left lane)

I don't expect SCS to start adding different speed limits per-lane (neither I see real utility for the game); but in sake of realism when they model Iberia, those signals must be put there because they aren't an over-signaling just in case, they have a meaning.

@MandelSoft I understand you well, but I'm telling you that in the real world it's not how you, I want it. :)

No trucks above 7,5t allowed on Sundays in Germany. ("Sonntagsfahrverbot"). Would be great to see in the game. Main transit country in Europe blocked one day of the week... :mrgreen:

There a "much less trucks" on the road on Sundays, in Germany. Not "no trucks". You have to pay a fee, and to do some paperwork, to get an exemption.

It's not that easy. There are quite a few limitations and then the paperwork begins...

Norway has a lot of "right rule" instead of yielding for traffic from all directions. This is non exsistant in the game today.. Meaning, on roads with speedlimit 60km/h or slower, you're supposed to give way to traffic comming from intersections to your right, if there's no signs that says otherwise.

2 things:

1- Notice how sometimes vertical signs have a smaller size because of space constrictions, in this case they increased the road lanes and run out of space for a regular 90 km/h speed limit sign in the median.

2- Can I go in the middle lane at 110 km/h and avoid fines?
