Nice, I've drawn the Québec's ones in the past (back when I wanted
Google Maps to actually use them). I now realised they are low quality
but I could spend sometime improving them if you like. I also have the
seal for every numbered roads (1xx to 3xx) that are not motorways.
For the colours, I'd say go for a nuanced palette... the current colours
are too saturated... when you put a marker on it, it doesn't comes out.
I am looking forward to see your work!
