The image quality is terrible (I shot this from a taxi, and we were moving fast...) I really wonder what this is all about. Umbrella mandatory ? A place where you can find an umbrella ?
Anybody an idea ?

This is a sign you'll find in the Netherlands to announce a radar (with camera) installed close to traffic lights. The funny thing here is that the camera symbol is an old reflex camera (looks like a Nikon F type) which was already obsolete for a long time when that radar has been installed.

Also see the previous post (hereunder). Seen in the same location. An explanation for non-French people. This type of toilet is just a hole with two places for the feet. You need to be half-standing to use this. Only used in France and considered completely archaic for like 50 years... still they have installed one brand new one in that building along the highway. This is something I really cannot understand. This could be a unique sign in the world...
Very interesting one. Found on the highway from Paris to Brussels. They identify the toilets with that sticker on the door. First and only time in my life I have seen this... this should be compared with the similar sticker found in the next post above.
Several steps instructions in case of evacuation in a French building (provided you have the time to read this or even to look at it).
1) keep calm when hearing the signal
2) follow instructions of the teams
3) go to the nearest exit
4) don't come back
5) don't use elevators
6) go to the meeting points
up to you to decide if you find the pictograms clear enough...

This picture has been shot in Namur, Belgium and proposed by François Mertens, a fellow photographer from the Nikonpassion site. The sign says: "Switch on your headlights". This is amazing because 1) it is forbidden to enter the tunnel (one way road) and 2) the tunnel has been closed for the last 10 years.
