Invisible Road Signs
Posted 31 August 2009 - 08:47 AM
If any bush or tree happens to grow in front of them, they become really invisible, and you will miss your exit without even noticing it.
How hard is it for the officials charged with road maintenance to cut off the plantation that hides the road signs?
Should maybe someone remind them that taking good care of the visitors and tourists is the best promotion for Crete?

in English script
I dont think that it's English: in the toponyms the translitteration from greek to latin characters in the past was made following an old Cyprus Convention table (I do not remember the reference .. it was may be in the 50ties), similar to ISO 843
Now, as more Greeks know latin character set from English, some notations changed: is evident the greek "χ", before on signs written "ch" , that is now quite ever "h".
I fully agree that to have a double notation on signs is very useful and kind for tourists

It is not only the Greeks who cover their road signs, you should see the trees/shrubs that cover some road signs here in Wales!

You are right of course, the English language uses the Latin script. Thanks for the correction.
