PROBLEM !

My friends taking a vacation in Greece tell me that they find it impossible to hire a car and drive around Greek cities, since all traffic direction signs are written in Greek alphabet..

I told them that it was natural and that they should have mastered the Greek language, before going threre.

In my opininon, traffic signs should be in local alphabet and writing system BUT under that writings, at least in important ones it can be written in english or english/french both in a smaller size, maybe half size. In countries using latin alphabets, for local names this isnt necessary but for important signs such as "STOP" multilanguage preferred.

 

An example from cambodia:
