It’s back to “SCOHOL” for you!

Road contractor in Doral, Florida makes ironic error that seems almost impossible to make... until we did some research
school crosswalk This is how it should be done. But unfortunately... (Β© Cheryl Casey - Dreamstime.com)


No matter where it is that you go to school, it is likely that the road outside it looks something like the photo above. The word "SCHOOL" painted on the pavement in tall block letters. This serves as a warning to motorists to slow down and be aware of the hundreds of kids in the area. Safety first!

However, recently in the city of Doral, Florida, near Miami, these markings served as a warning of something else.

A serious lack of concentration.

Oh no! "SCOHOL"? How did that happen? Fortunately, it didn't take long for the problem to be corrected. For a before and after, see below.

That's better... (Local 10)

All's whell, that ands wall?

So at least that episode is over, right? What are the chances of that ever happening again?

Interesting, fairly high...

We took a look around the internet and discovered to our dismay that the mishap in Doral was far from a one-off.

For example, in 2017, this happened outside a school in Revelstoke, B.C.

Again? (Jewelles Smith/Facebook)

And here it is happening twice side-by-side in Deltona, Florida.

Double trouble! (nuclearwomb/Reddit)

Yikes!

Make SCOHOL SCHOOL Again

Is there a larger conspiracy here that we're unaware of? Some kind of anti-education group aiming to mock our schools from just outside their very doorstep?

Actually, the CBC story about the Revelstoke incident gave us some insight. In this case, the stencils that are used to paint the letters come in pairs. One has "SC", the next "HO", the last "OL". At the Revelstoke, the contractor accidentally flopped the middle stencil, producing "OH" instead. And "SCOHOL" was born!

In the end, given that these signs are there to get people's attention, you could say that it all worked out.
