Motorists in Wisconsin might find themselves on the road to nowhere if they follow this sign:


The towns names of Rothschild and Schofield have been misspelled, as well as the word business.

According to  an article: “David Vieth, director of the bureau of highway operations for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, said the mistake was made by Decker Supply Company of Madison, which printed the sign.”

Somewhere, a proofreader has been asked to hit the road.

Hat tip to Samir.



  1. After all that, I wouldn’t trust the numbers either …
