Lord Sedgwick's media mate Declan (possibly a proof reader), has taken a summer job programming electronic road signs around Melbourne.
Some road works are happening in, well I am not sure. The electronic sign tells me the works are between Queens Parade and Chaple Street.
It wasn't until I saw witches hats today that I was sure the works were between the beginning of Queens Way and Chapel Street.
I am not particularly pedantic, but I would have thought those who programme electronic road signs would be generally of a pedantic nature.
I am reminded of one of Mother's garage sales when I wrote a sign 'More items in hear'. Sister was horrified. I explained, a browser will want to tell you that your spelling is wrong. You are now engaged in conversation with them and a step closer to selling something to them.
But I fail to see a motive for putting up incorrect spelling and street names on an electronic road sign.
