Straight Driving

I will never get used to how so many drivers in Israel consider it normal to snake in and out of lanes. I’ve seen them do it with the Police in full view. I always thought the Police were simply turning a blind eye but never actually thought that this is the preferred way of driving until I saw this sign in Yaffa road, Jerusalem, opposite the Central Bus Station.

Actually the sign in Hebrew says “Straight Ahead Forbidden!”

I have no doubt that the Jerusalem council has plenty of native English speakers working for them yet the iriyah cannot be bothered to get their signs properly checked before they are put up.
