I doubt that, because Kosovo went under UN administration in 1999, when YU code was still actual. Also, I don't think Kosovo Albanians would have anything with government in Belgrade after that.

I'm still laughing at the "turn right for A4".

Did you see that sign by yourself? Where exactly near Tarvisio? It seems fake because there is no A4 anywhere in that area. Or maybe they would mean A23 and made a mistake.

Because it was official language in Yugoslavia (that sign is obviously from that times).

There's a mistike in Latin variant of Serbo-Croatian inscription: it's not "olučaju" but "slučaju".

It exists. It's here:
https://maps.google.it/?ll=46.426273...,13.93,,0,3.51

I guess A4 is an error. And they couldn't mean A23 either, because otherwise they should have put it on the other direction (Cave del Predil, Tarvisio, A23).

I understand. By turning right you can reach Udine across Slovenian territory (Predil pass - Kobarid - Cividale - Udine) and then A4. But it's much faster returning back to Sella Nevea and take the A23 at Carnia junction.

It was only administrative. The only official language in Slovenia was Slovenian (along with Italian and Hungarian on some places, but not there). But we understood Serbo-Croatian as well, of course.

Trilingual sign Ladin/German/Italian. Weird language order. It's probably in a valley where Ladin is commonly spoken.

No idea. I haven't tried to do so This was the only spot where I saw signs in First Nations-languages. In National Parks, signs are mostly bilingual English-French. But since there are no places (not that I know of) in Canada with different names in English of French, bilinguality was restricted to "Exit-Sortie" and those kind of signs.

I could come up with a few if I felt like expending the mental energy (I've heard St. John's*, Newfoundland, referred to in French as "Saint-Jean, Terre-Neuve."), but I think the days when Anglophones called Trois-Rivičres "Three Rivers" are long gone.

*Always spelled "St.," while Saint John, New Brunswick, is always spelled out - "Saint" - to help distinguish them.

I guess "Skwikw" and "Lúxwels" are in the Squamish language, while "Tsíqten" and "Skénkenam" are in the Lillooet language, I think.

Scottish govt is planning on dual English-Gaelic signs on national roads. It won't replace existing ones of course, but new ones that need to be raised will be dual.

As it stands, it's mostly just in the very north one finds dual signs.
