The Paris police revealed yesterday in their weekly newsletter that there is only one stop sign in the city, situated at the exit of a building company in the rich 16th arrondissement.
“For traffic in the city centre, it’s the right which gets priority,” the newsletter read as explanation for the lack of stop signs.
“[This rule] applies in to round abouts too, for example the Champs Elysées, which in itself is different to others due to the absence of a central island, which is instead replaced by road markings.”
