New York's Spelling Problems

This afternoon, I was driving northbound on 684 near the Westchester/Putnam County border in New York state.

I passed under one of those highway signs that they can program with different messages.  Today's message was:

OZONE ALERT
       USE
  ASS TRANSIT


Seriously, that's what it said.  Since I was sitting in my car and driving, I think that's the kind of transit I was using.

I had my camera with me, having just come from an appraisal, but I thought it might be better not to crash into anyone while trying to take a picture and driving on the highway at the same time.

New York really needs to replace the little light bulbs in their signs...
