Garaj. Nu parcați. – Garage. No parking.
Atentie! Garaj. – Attention! Garage.
Garaj. Va rugam nu blocati poarta! – Garage. Please do not block the door!
Apparently residents of Romania really don’t like their garages being blocked. The streets are filled with notices – often colourfully painted on garage doors, sidewalks and movable signs across country. I found these in the mountain town of Brașov.
Yes, Romanians have cars. They don’t all drive a horse-drawn cart filled with hay. They have an 80 mph motorway, although that is only a guideline as most Romanians tend to drive way over the speed limit (a perfect match for the large hitchhiking culture in the country).
