comment Does the phrase “violations will be enforced” make any sense?
@KrisQuigley It's a sign on a road, but it's about panhandling in the medians so it is most likely not directed at actual drivers. Regardless, even if it was for drivers, there are four words used, and I can certainly think of other four-word combos that would convey the same message but without the problem of using words in ways they weren't intended.

@GEdgar It's possible, since 75% of this city speaks English as a 2nd language. Your point is taken; most people probably do get the meaning. But the same meaning can by conveyed using the CORRECT words.

I am sure that is what the sign writers wanted to say. I don't think the words they chose work the way they used them.
