Following a country-wide effort to replace Turkish road markers with EU-regulation signs, a report has found that many of Turkey's most common road signs are now unrecognizable to the majority of the country's motorists......
.......The motorists scored lowest when attempting to identify signs that meant “trucks forbidden” and “no entry,” recognizing the signs only 28 percent and 13 percent of the time, respectively......

Far better to introduce road awareness at a young age. Most Turkish kids have had only 1 lesson in crossing a road and that is "Launch yourself into the road and hope that traffic avoids you. If it doesn't, it's Allah's will."

I don't know if it's part of the new signs scheme but white lines have been painted on the roads and we seem to have more than a zebra. Unfortunately it's not always clear why they are there.

Unfortunately though they must have had a surplus of paint because on the Dalyan Koy road they've gone mad and painted lines every few metres!
