Well, I do not know if that is the case... Romanian has borrowed quite a few words from Bulgarian (official language of Vlachia until 14th century) and other Slavic languages. (I may give you quite a few examples - ograda, voinik, poiana etc.) I think this is the Slavic word, and not a Romance cognate...

Italy

In Italy, the regular sign for no parking...



... is valid only for 8h-20h on urban areas, unless otherwise posted (a 24h rectangular white background black typeface "integrative panel" or other time-specified restriction).

Parking is allowed on the curbside unless otherwise posted, provided you leave 1m distance on the right to the front door/wall/fence/whatever is built.

The sign indicating parking and stop forbidden is applicable 24h per default.

======
The "passo carrabile" sign indicates that there is an easement at that point that must be kept clear. In other other, a garage, parking lot or driveway entrance. Every single access to the smallest and narrower of streets with auto traffic must be signed and assigned: they have unique codes. This is, by far and large, the most ubiquitous traffic sign in Italy:



============

Finally, curbside paintings:

YELLOW: reserved/special parking (requires a permit or that the vehicle fit the category - e.g., guests of a hotel unloading).

BLUE: paid parking

These are the general parking regulation signs seen through out the US. However, state and local governments often make variations on the signs above.
The "No Standing" sign is pretty common too.

Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca: limited parking zones.
A resident's parking permit or payment at ticket machine is necessary, with limited time of parking without a resident's permit.

Both signs in Catalan only, pics taken in Summer 2012

Barcelona



Palma de Mallorca

In Spain all traffic signs MUST BE IN SPANISH (or with icons).

That's means if a traffic sign is in another language, even if is official or not, must be Bilingual or will not be legal.

In another words, these signs, and a lot off traffic signs in Calataluña / C. Valenciana / Islas Baleares which are only written only in Catalán dosen't have any legal validity, so, like if never had existed.



¿why are only in Catalan? Because some people are …!

And yes, you don't have to pay the fine (if you have one )http://www.vozbcn.com/2011/12/23/970...ultas-senales/

I indeed received a multa in Palma once. The amount is EUR 60, or half of it for "fast payers".
The multa was a printed slip of paper, in both Catalan and Spanish, with a signature of the agent. But the zone sign was only in Catalan, like the photo above.

I did not pay, and up to now, did not get any reminder - the car had foreign plates

In South America, "Plata" means both silver and money.
