I Always Thought It Was Just Us That Had Problems Spelling Road Signs,

but it appears it is a problem in the US as well,

if this sign is anything to go by, it is near the corner of 50th Street and Pine Island Road in Lauderhill, Florida, where perhaps the painters should have gone to the Banyan Elementary School, that the sign warns of, Jerome Seleznow, 76, who lives just yards from the sign, said Friday that the entire neighborhood was dumbfounded by the mistake, 'it’s stupid, stupid, stupid,' said Seleznow. 'a school sign [spelled wrong] next to the school, stupid,'

but there is some good news, Brad Terrier, assistant director for the county’s Highway Construction and Engineering Division commented, 'we do review the work, unfortunately it seems like we may have not gotten to that review as of yet,' Terrier said Friday afternoon, just hours after he was alerted to the error from news reports, calling the misspelling incident 'very, very rare,' Terrier said a crew fixed the sign Friday afternoon, 'our focus has been getting it corrected at this point,' Terrier said. 'we are still trying to figure out some of the circumstances and looking into what the issues are,'

one of the crew members hired to fix the sign said Friday he thinks the error occurred because a single stencil containing the letters “H” and “O” was accidentally painted backward, so I guess that's what the circumstances were, but I am not sure about the issues.
