Sign For the Blind

Location: Dunkeld, Scotland
There’s this sign I saw in Scotland a couple of years ago. What can you make of it? My initial reaction was that it was addressed to the blind. On second thought, it would be like the blind leading the blind (pardon the pun). As we all know, the blind can’t see and read like a normal person.

The sign was likely posted by the door to inform the public that it was primarily for the use of the blind. However, it was presented in such a way that could cause the reader to be blindsided (again, pardon the pun).

A sign, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is a posted command, warning, or direction. It follows that it should be clear and unambiguous and not subject misinterpretation. Otherwise, it can lead to misunderstanding and unexpected consequences like injury or death.
