Take It From the Bottom

I usually read from the top left and move rightwards and down. This is usual for text written in English, There is an exception in the US; instructions painted on the road are to be read from the bottom upwards.

Mind you in this particular case, PED XING is barely English. That may make reading it harder, as XING PED makes about as much sense as in the other order. For those wondering to what Chinese hero this warning applies; it means Pedestrian Crossing.
