Lost in Translation

50 - Parking Prohibited

photo credit: Shalom Berger
location: Gush Etzion

Translation should be: Parking Prohibited in the Marked Area

In Hebrew "lachanot" means "to park"
"Lachanoot" means "to the store"
The Hebrew words are written with the same letters but different vowels

The sign maker probably used Google translate and not a human translator
Second mistake: wrote "market" instead of "marked"
