Log in to work

We here in Israel are so concerned with road safety that we now have installations along our highways where motorists can get off and log in to their work computers so that they won't feel rushed.

Actually... no.... This is a stupid mistranslation by the Highway Authority (Maatz), and what it really should say is "Entrance to work site." Unfortunately, our roads are full of mistranslations and misspellings like this one.

Well, maybe not unfortunately. It gives us bilingual people something about which we can laugh.

By the way, I am told that the sign is along Highway 75 in Northern Israel.

Or the road sign on the way to Queysaria (Caesarea with Queasy Q's). I remember a misspelling and total lack of knowledge of important historical figures) on a Dan bus stop sign on King George indicating Kikar Mazariq. (Good grief!!! Masaryk. Nu, motek, ever learned about him in school?)
