They’re trying to kill us

21/03/2012

I thought that it would be quite a while before I would return to the question of Welsh, but here we go again.

This sign was spotted in the centre of Cardiff by a bilingual North Walian during a shopping expedition down to the mainly monoglot south in 2006. Can anybody spot the deliberate error?

Yes, that’s correct. In English the sign read ‘Look Right,’ but underneath the Welsh read ‘Look Left.’

Steve Williams, service manager with Lux Traffic Controls, apologised for the “misunderstanding” and said: “We removed the sign as soon as the mistake was pointed out to us and we will rectify it as soon as possible.”
