We photographed this signpost in a small town in western Wisconsin. The error here is the word careful needs to appear in its adverbial form: carefully. The irony, of course, is that this appears on an alert for a school zone.
The following year, we found this same signpost lying in the tall grass a short distance from this site â€” possibly mowed down by a disgruntled English teacher from the school in question.
