Now I know this is way back from June (during the World Cup, but I only found it today and it reminded me of something similar which I must get written down on here. At least these guys managed to find their car.
Two English football fans in Cologne lost their car after mistakenly thinking they had parked it on a road called ‘One Way Street’.
The pair wrote down ‘Einbahn Strasse’ – which means one-way street in German – so they didn’t forget where they’d left the hire car.
But when they came to find it again they found that every second street in the inner city was called ‘Einbahn Strasse’.
It was only when they found a policeman that they were told the sign was to inform drivers that they were on a one-way street.
They finally managed to find their vehicle hours later with the help of the German police.
