During our recent vacation to Paris and Rome, we noticed these quirky traffic signs.
We first noticed it while walking around Montmarte in Paris.
A man stealing a “No Entry” sign.
We thought it was one of a kind, until we started noticing other signs with different designs in different neighborhoods around Paris.

When we went to Rome, we saw the signs again, with even more designs to match the neighborhoods they were in.

We don’t know if the traffic sign art – if you can call it that – is done by one person or by a group of people, or if it is authorized by the government or not. We just like them because they add a little humor to what would otherwise be ordinary (and quite boring) traffic signs.
