The man saw the sign Sunday, which directed motorists to drive the wrong way, KNXV reported.

Joshua, who did not give the television station his last name, said a "keep right to the median" sign actually directed drivers to keep to the left.

"So ... you want us to drive to the LEFT of the median??? My photo, taken Sunday evening," Joshua tweeted.

The sign had been in place for a month, but nobody had noticed, KNXV reported. Once Phoenix city officials saw the tweet, the sign was fixed within 12 hours, the television station reported.
