A good drawing with much detail also found on the Azores (Read more there). The other signs - aren't they cute? - are extremely bad design for roadsigns. If you had to think about their meaning; if your first reaction was how nice then it's bad design. As I explained more thoroughly on the Bulgarian page: Roadsigns must transmit an unequivocal message in a split-second.

You can't stop Modern Time with its faceless people. There is still some discussion going on about the design to be choosen: Spanish or Portuguese ? It's sure to be bad, but the choice could tell us something about the attitude of the islands against the mainland. The speed limit is on the safe side (limits range worldwide from 20 to 90 km; find the comparative table in Australia).
