A new signed near Al Saad Sports Club caused a lot of humour when it read, “In Arabic/New Road Layout Ahead,” and appears to be the actual Arabic translation of the message.
“I stopped my car when I saw it because I was about to get myself killed from laughter,” local resident Sulieman Fayyad told Doha News. “I couldn’t believe that I actually saw that. Then I drove around again to take a photo.”
Fayyad then shared the picture on Facebook and it got over 1,000 likes.
However, a day later Fayyad drove past the same spot but it had been replaced with the one above.
This is not the first error of course, Qatar residents have a long history of looking on the funny side of such mistakes.
