Broken: One way signs
I saw a pair of contradicting "one way" signs in San Francisco's financial district.
Also of note is the little, orange sign nearby, whose arrows seem to be saying "not one way."
Best of all, the "one way" signs were at the corner of a dead-end street, which means if you are already on that street, you've disobeyed one sign in order to get there, while exiting said street would require going against the other sign!
There was some sort of construction or roadwork taking place down that dead-end, so it's possible the dead-end-ness of it was only temporary.
