Misspelling On Highway Signs Could Cost Californians Thousands Of $$$


Who knew one little letter could cost so much money?  Two signs recently installed on Highway 1 in Monterey County, near Sand City, alert drivers about the Del Ray Oaks exit approaching in 1 1/4 miles.

But the city is actually Del REY Oaks. Wah wah. The sign for the exit itself also includes the wrong spelling, according to KCRA.

Caltrans didn’t notice the mistake until the day after installing the signs (which I am reading as someone called them to tell them about it). Fixing the mistake could cost Central Coast residents hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Apparently to replace the a with an e is on the cheaper side and completely replacing the sign is more expensive. So, uhhhhh, just replace the wrong letter?
