I was asked to report it in this section.
I´ve noticed that i get confused by some of the signs in this mod, not that I don´t understand them, I do.
But they seem contradictive sometimes, little quirky at times and sometimes I just end up wrong despite that according to signs I should be in the right lane etc.

This is an example I saw just tonight while playing. The location is the gas station/truckstop on E 75 between Novi Sad and Skopje just north of the border (right side of north-bound lane).

Comment:
This is an example of the strange signs in ProMods current version. The yield-sign is ok. The strange one is the blue sign on the left.
Why?
That sign says it´s a left-turn only intersection, and as you can see, that´s a hell-of-a turn to make with truck+trailer.
It´s extra weird since that road the camera is on come from the truck-parking area.

I thought I´d keep posting sign-related issues here, and others might just as well do the same.
I do it as I come by them when I play.

Update new signs with coordinates;

Why is it only giving directions for one lane when it´s a two-lane road? plus exit.

Have you checked whether if this happens in real life or not?

Anyways, I wouldn't count it as a bug to be honest. I understand what you said that when carrying a trailer it's a very difficult turn but take in count that this situation may happen because it's more faced for cars rather thank trucks / buses.

Yeah the design of that curve is a bit different. You can encounter plenty of such random situations in places like Serbia
But it's appropriate usage of signs

It´s an exit from the truck parking lot. To me it seems like it´s supposed to be left-turn there, that´s what the curvature of the road seems designed for.

On the left there's a No entry sign, so it can't be a left turn lane. Although the corner is a bit sharp, it's not meant to be used for Trucks with Trailers.
And still, in the future we need coordinates of the bug.

Something you have to keep in mind is that signs aren't placed logically in some parts of Europe. I can guarantee that for my country some signs have to be illogically placed simply due to how it is irl. People here aren't exactly smart.

That´s why it´s so weird. It´s a right-turn only intersection but you can´t enter that road (to the left) because it´s a one-way road.

Illogically placed is one thing, contradiction is another. That road should bend the other way (towards the E-raod) that would make more sense.
