Anti-French sentiment? SVP? (funny sign)

Look, I understand there's a lot of resentment about the French frontaliers who cross the border each day. But the Swiss have gone a step too far when they start a formal government program to keep them out. I mean, really -- look at this sign I spotted near the border today...

Hmmm... as I understand it, triangular signs are "beware of" signs... in which case, this one is maybe simply advising people that the French are not dangerous .

Apparently they are dangerous, but only after dark.

Hmmm I thought there was one red line too many. Near us in Leics (UK) we have several 'watch out for badgers signs' but nobody is anti Wisconsin
