Anyone knows what font they used to have on the french police cars? It can't be recent because it was the same font in the 70's :)

I don't necessarily think it is this font, but it does look a little bit like Gotham: http://www.typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100008

No, I'm pretty sure it's not gotham, Gotham was created way after, but it does have the same old-fashion style, kinda like Gill Sans. Thanks though.

I think it's an Avenir Black, anyway pretty similar

Close also, but I'm starting to think that it was a custom design.
