Traffic Sign Typefaces: Netherlands [Ralf Herrmann]

Ralf Herrmann discusses Dutch traffic typefaces. Quoting some passages: Until recently the organization being in charge of the traffic signs was the ANWB. It was founded as a Dutch bikers(!) society ("Algemeene Nederlandsche Wielrijders Bond") in 1883 and later became the royal tourist society. [...] The typeface used since the 1960s is called ANWB-Ee (also RWS-Ee) and it is based on FHWA series E (Modified) from the United States. A condensed version (ANWB-Cc) is also available and it is based on the FHWA series C design. In the late 1990s Gerard Unger was commissioned to design a new typeface called ANWB-Uu.
