Driving in Spain and Spanish Road Signs

As you know, we have been living in Spain for a few years, and during that time we have done our fair share of driving and trying to figure out the Spanish road signs.  I remember when we first arrived and trying to figure out the rules of the road.  Coming from the United States, there were plenty of things that were familiar, but many others that just made us wonder, or look up the answer on the internet.
