although this is a peripheral discussion here, I like to point out that "legal designation" has more dimensions to it than the average driver would maybe assume: the German signposted classification of Bundesstraße, Landstraße, Kreisstraße is about the operator, it is not the actual classification that authorities use to plan and manage the road network. They use planning guidelines with different classes, which are not directly visible to the user of a road. A good starting point for the German situation is maybe here: https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richtlinien_für_integrierte_Netzgestaltung
(I believe the actual guideline is not available for free), and I guess other countries will likely have similar standards that go beyond the system that is visible from signs on the road.
