Lost in translation: Amusing disabled access signs


Meryl in Edinburgh, Scotland sent us a link to many of the ridiculous signs found across the pond in China and other countries. The slide show, put together by the New York Times, features many signs that have nothing to do with disability.  But some of them do.  While we can't directly show the photos from the Times website, we found some other sources for them.
