Malta Needs More Passive Aggressive Traffic Signs Like This

A helpful translation can go a long way

Malta's streets have become a jungle to navigate, and the summer heat definitely only makes matters worse. If you're feeling a little overwhelmed and are drawing a blank when it comes to basic traffic signs, our island is here to help.

Earlier last September, a traffic sign showed up next to Siġġiewi's primary school with a beautifully passive aggressive message - "STOP TFISSER IEQAF", literally translating the age-old, international sign. The fact that we've come to needing a sign like this is actually quite worrying, but the execution is unintentionally hilarious.

Since then, people have been spotting similar signs all over the island, with new local satirical page Ġaħan Onlajn sharing a photo of another spotting yesterday. Will we eventually end up with all the STOP signs in Malta coming with this passive aggressive translation? All signs point to yes.

Hey, we're just here to help!

Tag a friend who's probably the reason why we need this sign.
