Okay, back to Quebec road signs that confused me for at least a moment based on a similar yet somewhat foreign symbol language. Enough with the moose. Today: Quebec apparently thinks you should take your car’s temperature if it starts acting dizzy and/or whatnot:
Now, I realized once I looked at this sign for more than a moment that it was actually warning about icy conditions. After all, out of control car…zero Celsius, after a minute I caught on. However, it took me a minute. This isn’t the “icy road” sign I’m used to looking for (though I certainly know to be watching for ice when it’s below freezing regardless). I’m not even used to thinking normally about Celsius, being from a country that still uses Fahrenheit.
Doesn’t it kind of look like the car is dizzy as a result? Doesn’t it kind of look like they are saying that your car could be sick and you should check its temperature? Hopefully its temperature isn’t going to be freezing or below, but still. Maybe a freezing level car temperature would indicate that it was sick, something different from a fever in humans (though perhaps something like hypothermia?).
Anyway, watch out for car sickness.
