Not a road sign but a pretty weird translation.
The contractor said: 'Write the description in this project in Hungarian, and then the same in English.'

Shit happens. A similar sign was spotted a few years ago in the brand new Malmi hospital in Helsinki:



("Samma pĺ svenska" = "Same in Swedish")

Yes, because Swedes have the same expression for all those five things.

And even if they actually do, this sign would be really useful for them...

Have it greater...


One Spanish village requested to change its official name and was accepted




"matajudios" = "Jewish killer"

Nowadays updated to "Mota de judíos" = "Jewish hill" (or something similar, not easy to translate, they searched the nearest word)




Taken two years ago, google street view remains with old name (Jewish killer) but information in google maps is always related with new name. I have seen in TV that sign was updated

BTW, easy to see that it is not a huge city or so....

On RA13 motorway near Trieste, Italy: "Don't text while driving"

Seen on Twitter: 'Pamplona (or Pampeluna, as you prefer) doesn't tolerate molestation'


I only translated what is written in Spanish, the text below is almost impossible to decode, although it appears to say the same.

Pamplona is a no-rape zone! (as the whole world officially is, by the secret to the city mayor)

Something similar in my city, but a street Cross only.

It's for the animal welfare protection

Try to understand which lane do you have to take to reach your destination:
https://www.google.es/maps/@41.63269...7i13312!8i6656

Another angle:
https://www.google.es/maps/@41.63279...7i13312!8i6656

The Satellite image may (or may not) help you find out.

There is one even worse, but Street View is not updated, so I might take a picture tomorrow.

It is silly, because all the (civilized) world has zero tolerance against sex offenses. It doesn't need a road sign to state this.
