Photoshop gone horribly wrong

There are two major faux pas in this ad. Can you find them?

The car is going the wrong way, also a common enough problem, but probably shouldn't be depicted in an ad. I also don't see a driver. And it would be nice if they could remind people to watch out for pedestrians, too.

that traffic light is hanging totally wrong, and the car has turned the wrong way down the 1 way st

besides that the car would have a red coming in from that street.

I see a pine tree air fresher. That should be 2pts. off a license right there.

Cars always go the wrong way down a one way street and bicyclists never do.

The good thing about bicyclists and their flagrant violations is that it inevitably thins down the bicycling population.

They drive like this on 18th Street in Astoria where a car driving down the middle of the sidewalk blocked the front entrance of my apartment.

God help me if I stepped out from my door while this idiot was driving up.

hahahaha

This is OBVIOUSLY done by a bike nut.

THEY ignore lights.

THEY go on streets the wrong way.

WHATS the problem? The mayor LIKES them so whats the issue?

There's one more astounding mistake...take a look at the bike lane closely.

No helmet on the bike rider! and the lane should be at the curb?

Queens Crapper said...

Very observant! Those were two things I didn't pick up on. But the mistake I have in mind has to do with continuity.

The bike lane doesn't go past the car.

Hey are they implying that in addition to turning the wrong way down the street, that the driver also went through a red light? Why would he have to "look" out for a cyclist coming from that direction if he had a green light, unless the cyclist failed to stop at his red light?

Good point there. All vehicles--and this applies to bikes--are supposed to be driven so that they can stop quickly in case of emergency. That is one of the flaws of bikes, they cannot (and will not, and do not). I am pro-bike, but also pro-safety. Too many are irresponsible.

That street goes east not west like in the picture.

Shouldn't the bike lane be on the left of Lafayette?

Cars going to wrong way and through a red light.

It's a metaphor (or something like that). The lane ends at the car because the rider's life ended at the car.

Oh no! I'm so hung up in the details and unprecedented continuity "errors" that I just can't grok the message of the ad.

Silly billies.
