Back to SCHOOl
Possibly my favorite find to date, this SCHOOl X-ING on-road signage can be seen painted on Underhill Ave. by Bergen Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. I think this is probably the result of a parked car blocking the path of the street painter, and the painter just never got around to returning to the scene of the crime to finish the job, figuring a lowercase L was better than no L. But confusion could arise if one were to mistake the first uppercase i in X-ING as another lowercase L ... so if it's X-LNG, does it then read as EXCELLING SCHOOL? ...
BOOM! You just hit a kid crossing the street because you were confused by the lowercase L.
