Just wanna ask the genius who put the sign there, HOW?????

If you keep any more left, you will be in bed in the hospital below.

P.S: Maybe some sort of tie up between the BDA and the hospital authorities.

Many such signs have been put up on Bangalore Flyovers though they are supposed to be at the starting of a median or a median less road

The language is Kannada. The geniuses who painted these boards have directly translated the words from the Kannada proverbs in the same order. They have tried to explain for non Kannada speakers, but I guess they are trying to explain to some aliens, maybe

Default Weird Sign board

This snap is from my colleague who spotted this on his way to work. If it is taken in literal meaning, you have to be bothered if you are a pedestrian

This is the new problem in Bangalore these days, The cops(or who ever planned to put up that board) thinks that a pedestrian is a footpath.
I saw this board which says " "<-- Way to pedestrian", for a small stretch created for pedestrians after removing the foot path for widening the road.

So many things in that sign they could have got wrong!

You'd better keep a note of the place, in case you meet any Mexicans that need healing
