Where bilingualism pays off…

From the “oops” file:

Had you encountered this sign, and spoke both English and Welsh, you would have had the benefit of knowing that one needed to look both ways before crossing the street.

Thanks to a small error though, if you only spoke either English or Welsh, you would have only known to look either Right or Left as the Welsh text at the bottom says “Pedestrians Look Left”.

Regardless of circumstances I wholeheartedly suggest all pedestrians look both ways regardless of what a sign says. Then again, after years of driving in Toronto I’d take pedestrians looking any direction before they stepped out onto the street.
