The state of Washington has some pretty funny street signs.  I saw this one on Saturday.  How are your vocabulary skills?

  1. Ya gotta love those long English word signs in Washington. The other one I love and still have to stop and take a photo of is “Avoidance of signal prohibited” I also love that English is still our first language in the state of Washington :0)

  2. Glad you included the definition…I thought it should have said “activate” the signal!
