What do these traffic signs mean? I saw them in Bali, Indonesia.

These are road classifications meant for truck drivers, in terms of max dimensions and weight of the vehicles allowed.

Sign with one line: Entry restrictions on vehicles with a width exceeding 2.5 meters, length exceeding 18 meters, height 4.2 meters, and the heaviest axle load of 10 tons.

Sign with two lines: Entry restrictions on vehicles with a width exceeding 2.5 meters, length exceeding 12 meters, height 4.2 meters, and the heaviest axle load of 8 tons.

Sign with three lines: Entry restrictions on vehicles with a width exceeding 2.1 meters, length exceeding 9 meters, height 3.5 meters, and the heaviest axle load of 8 tons.

    I consider these as the most boring, misleading and ugly road signs ever.. – Nean Der Thal Sep 2 '19 at 21:53
  • Strangely, page 82 seems to have a misprint. Instead of pictures of signs I, II and III, it has pictures of signs I, II and II. – Weather Vane Sep 2 '19 at 22:05
  • @WeatherVane the third line is there, it's just formatted badly, look at the line under. – Nean Der Thal Sep 2 '19 at 22:12
  • Hah! Printed over the next sign down! – Weather Vane Sep 2 '19 at 22:18

    @NeanDerThal how are they ugly or misleading? They may just not be very descriptive for foreigners, not for the truck drivers who now the class of their vehicle. – PHPst Sep 2 '19 at 22:43
