The Israeli television program Tzinor Layla (Night Tube) asked viewers to share photos of the most bizarre construction they could find in their towns. Find they did, and the photos they shared will inspire the age-old question, “What were they thinking?”
Here are some examples of the paths to nowhere, such as the staircase that leads to a ceiling at a Haifa school:
Kids would be advised not to travel too fast down the yellow slide in this street-side playground. Notice the Jerusalem light rail passing by in the background:
Bikers were no doubt happy the Holon municipality painted a clearly-marked bike path for their benefit. Then again, they might not be too psyched to be led smack into a tree.
“Right to the tree. It’s suggested to hug it with open arms,” commented former Tel Aviv Chief City Engineer Yisrael Gudovich who was invited to the show to discuss the strange sightings.
Planners in Jerusalem generously constructed a wheelchair ramp, only it’s too narrow for an actual wheelchair to pass through. “I see a ramp for a disabled person who won’t go far,” Guy Lerer, the host of Channel 10’s Tzinor Layla, said.
Here’s another of the unusual photos, which like the others TheBlaze cannot verify. Someone thought it would be funny to plant a no-entry sign inside the Mediterranean Sea near the shoreline of Acre in northern Israel.
Then there was the strangely-placed crosswalk...painted between two fences.
This sign was seen at an entrance to a parking lot in another Tel Aviv suburb, Ramat Gan, which says pedestrians are required to walk on sidewalk. Only problem is you'd have to be pretty skinny to find room on the sidewalk the width of a balance beam. Speaking of balance beam, it might be easier to walk on the red and white railing.
“That’s not a mistake. That’s covering their a**,” said former city engineer Gudovich.
