In the News – Why Punctuation Matters

The town of Ludlow in England put up these signs.

There is already a parking restriction. For non-Brits the double yellow lines at the kerb mean “no waiting”. The sign was just to warn motorists that the restriction was being enforced. However a missing full stop between PARKING and ENFORCEMENT gave the sign the completely opposite meaning.

On the subject of road signs I spotting this one on a farm access in Lanarkshire.
