Pro Tip: If you hire a contractor to paint words on a street, make sure they can spell.

Drivers in a town in the Berkshires were surprised when they drove into a school zone last Thursday and saw they were in a “SCOHOL” zone

Contractors were hired by Pittsfield, Massachusetts to paint the zone warning on a roadway.

City staff left before the word was painted, but obviously assumed it would be a no brainer.

Not so much. The town got the bill for the project the next morning and shot off a quick email saying “we’re not paying until this is fixed.”
