I have no idea why this thought popped into my head in the shower... maybe my mind is still in California. Of course that still doesn't explain the thought, but I'll talk about it anyway. California, like some other states, doesn't require a driver to know English in order to get a license. In fact, if you walk into a California DMV and ask for a copy of the Driver's Handbook, you will find that there are shelves full of them in not only languages like Spanish and German, but also Mandarin Chinese and Vietnamese. Need to take the written test? We can accommodate you there too. Most of the time when I see complaints about these policies, it usually goes along the line of:

When was the last time you saw a red, octagonal sign that said “yield”?
If I remember correctly, a portion of the written test (in WI) is on signs. I'm pretty sure there aren't any words on those signs either. I'm thinking it's safe enough.
