Operator of Hungary’s road system, “Magyar Közút,” is putting up traffic signs in Ukrainian on Hungary’s highways with the aim to help people fleeing from Ukraine by car. The company will provide road and traffic information also in Ukrainian, in one of three languages displayed on digital signs on expressways, the company announced on Saturday.

Magyar Közút (Hungarian Public Roads) wrote that many of the refugees from Ukraine don’t speak foreign languages or have no experience in road traffic. With these signs, they will be able to easily navigate the highways after arriving in Hungary.
Road operation experts have created Ukrainian text for some three hundred pre-programmed digital signs.
Since the traffic managing software cannot handle Cyrillic letters, texts were drawn pixel by pixel by the company’s employees.
