Latest Poll

City authorities are canvassing opinions from local residents over the necessity to remove English road names on local traffic signboards. In Shanghai, most of the traffic signs have road or area names on them in both Chinese and English. But the English road names are mostly in Pinyin. Officials said such English versions of road names are not quite useful and removing the English letters means more room to enlarge the Chinese characters to make them more readable. What's your take on this likely change? Related story »
