Britons driving abroad this summer are being urged to familiarise themselves with road signs they might encounter in the countries they are visiting.
Many are pretty easy and similar to those seen in the UK.
But there are plenty of unusual instructions that motorists from Britain would never have encountered before.
It’s imperative that motorists know what they mean, especially as driving in a different country – and on the opposite side of the road – can be taxing enough.
Tim Alcock from LeaseCar.uk said: ‘Getting behind the wheel abroad can be nerve wracking.
‘Not only have you got to get used to driving on the wrong side of the road in a left-hand drive vehicle, you’ve got to get up to speed on the rules of the road too.
‘Luckily, most road signs in Europe have been standardised under the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals, but some will look completely alien to drivers from the UK.’
With the help of the car leasing firm, This is Money has created a quiz of 14 European road signs that might cause some confusion.
This includes signs from popular holiday destinations including Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey.
And some are from lesser-visiting summer locations, including Estonia, Iceland and Slovenia.
