With the implementation of the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals in 1978, many members of the European Union now utilize a standard set of signs and signals to make travel easier for both visitors and residents alike. You will see signs and advisements that will be only valid in a particular country, such as London's congestion charge; however a majority of the signs in European destinations will be standardized.
Standard signs found throughout Europe will fall under the classes listed below, ranging from danger warnings, to services information, to directional signs. For information regarding signage specific to certain countries, please click here.
