Misspelled Signs



Driving along the Barrier Highway, in Nackara in South Australia, one crosses Reservoir Creek. In a tribute to the standards of education in the schools and quality control in the road signage inustry, the name of the creek is misspelled twice. The signs on each side of the creek show a different misspelling.
