    Outbound (i.e., westbound) traffic signs on the Harvard Bridge over Storrow Drive.

    During the baseball season, I wonder how many people get confused by the sign on the left. The Red Sox play in Fenway Park, just outside Kenmore Square. To see a game there, you should follow the arrow to "Kenmore Sq." But if you're an out-of-towner, you might think you should follow the arrow to "Fenway" -- not knowing that it refers to a Boston neighborhood at some distance from the ballpark. (It probably confuses some Bostonians, too.)
