Spur/auxiliary roads for the rest of the world[edit]

Hey guys, it would be awesome if Template:Infobox road/meta/mask/country could be adapted so it doesn't disallow roads outside of the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia to be assigned as spur road of another road. In the current case, I'd like to assign Greek Motorway 581 (Greece) as a spur road, but am not able to. Same case would hold for a number of roads all over Europe and worldwide. Wherever states and provinces are irrelevant for the highway numbering plan, they shouldn't be required either. Thanks, --PanchoS (talk) 22:32, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

I understand what you're saying, but your fault in the country mask is misplaced. All that template does is allows those of us in the US, for example, to skip typing |country=USA. –Fredddie 22:38, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
It works as directed in this example –Fredddie 22:42, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

@PanchoS: you didn't add the |spur_type= parameter to the infobox on that article. I did, and the line displays correctly in the article now. Imzadi 1979  00:22, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
