i was unaware of this variant, but it could be quite useful in the US,
where we will usually see signage for maximum height, but sometimes
we see signage for "maximum height - actual". the normal sign includes
some margin of safety, the "actual" sign indicates that there is no margin.

this is a situation that's well known in the hauling industry in the US.
