* remember: right sided traffic only

Constant reminder that traffic goes on the right side in GermanyIn Germany the traffic usually moves on the right side of the road. It was always like this and did not change in recent times. However it seems that the people working for the road department, do not trust the common driver. Maybe they think that sometimes the driver is in the need of being reminded of the traffic moving on the right side. No efforts are are too big and the money is well spend for that purpose. Otherwise the 30 signs on a stretch of 850m constantly reminding the drivers to pass the road divider to the right only, cannot be explained. The photo shows Von-Coels-Straße in Eilendorf, Aachen, Germany (click to enlarge). The map below the stretch shown in the photo marked in blue, the car is at the position where I took the photo from.
