Quebec uses French on Stop signs

Arrêt it says in this Dictionnaire québécois – français. The French and Catalan and Spanish authorities don’t yet seem to have noticed all those English Stops defiling their linguistically pure streets.

  1. actually, stop is used in france as a verb, stopper-to stop. of course it comes from english but they do use it, so it makes sense to use it on stop signs. i dont know about the spanish though.

  2. In Mexico the octagonal stop signs show the word ALTO and never made it to your blog.
    I am sure that Carod-Rovira was thinking about doing something similar in Catalonia, but even he realized that ATUREU-VOS SISPLAU, may not fit in the sign. But what the heck, he does not even have a driver’s license!!!
