Street Signs

Driving rules and street signs are a little different in Germany.
The yellow diamond designates the road as a priority road. Stop signs are not used nearly as frequently as in the United States. Instead, if the road does not have the yellow diamond, drivers are required to watch for traffic at intersections. The car on the right gets to go first, not the first car to reach the intersection.
 This sign means no parking. The arrow on the bottom pointing to the right means no parking in front of the sign. If the arrow were on the top and pointing to the left it would mean no parking behind the sign.
This sign means don't drive here. No automobile entry. The German text means agricultural vehicles can use the road. It is placed at entrances to paved walking trails and used when construction blocks passage.
