Hereof, what does rappel on French road signs mean?
You'll often see the word 'rappel' underneath speed limit signs in France. It translates as 'reminder' and its purpose is to remind you that speed restrictions are still in place, so you need to stick to the specified limit.
Additionally, do they have stop signs in France? Yield & Stop Signs At a yield sign in France, you must yield to traffic from the left and right, but don't have to stop if there is no one coming.
Moreover, why are Spanish stop signs in English?
The Spanish word "alto" to make people stop comes from German "halt", from "halten" (to stop), from where English took "halt" too. It makes perfect sense to use either "pare" or "alto", because both are short and mean "stop". Notice that "alto" (=tall) and "alto" (=stop) look the same, but they are not related.
How many stop signs in France?
