IMO this is quite stupid. Those overhead cameras should have been placed further from that sign.

On the Dutch wegenforum we have a section with "wegweizers". A wegweizer is a misspelling of the correct wegwijzer, which means a road sign, hence a wegweizer is a road sign that has a mistake on it. Over the years, hundreds of examples have been collected, most of them are road numbers not shown as they should be (especially direct/indirect signage) and spelling errors on signs.

in most slavic languages that word is used to sign dumb, stupid people, generally - idiots (shouldn't be misplaced with illness with same name, although it comes from it probably), i'm sure it is in other languages similar, isn't it??

I looked for a English word for Polish 'kretynizm'
