The following sign I had spotted in Viman Nagar, Pune. That time the lane was declared NO PARKING by traffic police and boards came up within a couple of days. Being an official sign it should not have spelling mistakes.

For non-maharashtrians, "VAAHNE" means vehicles. But this board says "VAAVNE" which is wrong.

Now the standard of English spellings is dropping on iOS also.
Look at the advertisement below-
Android mobail (this might be intentional)
Angary birds!?!
Downloding!!!!

Looks like a disaster to me!

This one spotted in Kalyan city, while I was going towards Navi Mumbai.

If you still cannot spot it, check the distance in front of Lonavla, its only 33 km from Kalyan.

That is the 2nd Hoogly bridge in Kolkata. Not Bandra Worli Sea link !!

There is a small speed breaker -- at the place where the repairing is being done and thus the HUMP SLOW as in " drive slow, speed breaker ahead"

The bridge-makers or municipal corporation handing out some free public-interest advice? Our country is a gold-mine of grammatical faux pas.

Ohhhh . I knew only one meaning and its as follows:

1. A rounded mass or protuberance, such as the fleshy structure on the back of a camel or of some cattle.


Here's another one found via google:

A rounded raised mass of earth or land: they sat on a hump of cropped grass

Forgive me pals.

You missed it by a mile! You did not follow the instructions to the letter!

Nevermind, have sent you the correct link by email (couldn't post it on the forum)

I had to think hard about this one, although I was realising that road signs offering advice on one's love life might be considered unusual just before I read your post.

How about "Use Dipper At Night?" But I don't have a photo, so maybe this one is a myth.

I used to see travelogues with suggestive warning signs, like go easy on my curves from the mountain roads. Do they still exist?
