Ezeh keta!

Form [sic] 9:00 to 18:00 only public "transpotraion" is allowed on this congested section of Agrippas Street in central Jerusalem.
Well, at least the Hebrew original is OK, almost.
I wonder how the Arabic translation fared on this big sign.
Let's send it to the Signs, Signs meme--and maybe back to the printer too.

This is what the street looks like.
Standing or creeping buses as far as the eye can see.
It doesn't look like the private cars noticed the sign prohibiting them.
Until a few months ago, most of this traffic went along the wider Jaffa Street.
But then came the new tram and most of Jaffa St. was closed to vehicles.
Agrippas is a mess.

Wow that is some traffic congestion Dina, I think probably similar in most cities. I saw a sign somewhere yesterday that said 'you are not stuck in traffic, you are traffic' haha! Have a great weekend.

I staied in a hotel on Agrippas for a couple of days in 1995. It was already a mess, but not like this!

More big city traffic strife shown here. But even a public bus would move slowly here. What's the use?

Great find! :-)

Oh that traffic congestion reminds me of Khartoum, Dina! And I love the sign. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'll visit your friends' blog shortly. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Jo

OI, and double OI.

The (mis)spelling makes me smile a bit. But I guess it's quite common where English is a foreign language.

All this traffic reminds me of Honolulu. How awful. I hope there's not too much frustration on the road.
