Shared by X user Sumukh Rao, the signboard has words written on it in two different font sizes. "Whoever thought this was a good sign to put up? Reads so bad when driving past and you don't see the text in the smaller font," Rao wrote while sharing the picture of the signboard. He mentioned in the comments section that he noticed the board near Cubbon Park area.

At first glance, the big, bold letters on the signboard read, "Follow Someone Home". However, when you look closer, the actual message gets clearer. Text in a smaller font, written below each of these words in bold complete the message. "Follow traffic rules... someone is waiting at home for you," reads the text on the signboard.

"Authorities and their script writers completely out of sync in terms of requirements and functionality," added a third.

This isn't the first time a quirky signboard from Bengaluru has gone viral. Earlier, unique 'no parking' signs in Bengaluru's posh Koramangala neighbourhood also went viral.

Instead of the simple "no parking" message, the signs read "don’t even think of parking here" and "no parking… not for 10 minutes, not for 5 minutes, not at all!"
