Street signage in most countries is biscriptal with Latin. And Greeklish and Volapuk encodings
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greeklish for Greek and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Chat_Alphabet for Cyrillic transcribed into Latin, and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_Chat_Alphabet for Arabic transcribed into Latin.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volapuk_encoding for Latin spoofing as Cyrillic.
