Most motorways (Autobahn type) in Europe has half kilometer markers,
For several countries, main routes (non-Autobahn) also have markers.
In some countries, even 200 or 100 meter markers.
At least in my country, also county roads have half kilometer markers.
If in an emergensy, I think I'd give ethe nearest marker position if I
see it or remember it before I struggle to read a lat/long position.
