The Road to Apostrophell is paved with errors
On the way home to Newcastle from Leeds yesterday, I spotted a digital road sign on the A184, just before the Redheugh bridge:A184 Gateshead N,castle A189
This sign is irritating for two reasons:
The sign is a dot-matrix and so can be configured to show an apostrophe, so why it was displaying the above, I don't know.
There was a spare dot matrix cell on the left of the sign, there was no reason why it could not have said "Newcastle" in full!
