This is how I look when I try to read Japanese characters! 😉

But in reality it was a part of funny “propaganda” for construction workers stating: “when in doubt check again!”

まよったときは 再確認

The most interesting here is what is missing on this picture. The character 迷 for 迷う(まよう)being lost, going astray with on-reading メイ and used in such conjunctions as:
 迷信(めいしん) lit. the belief that went astray = superstition
 迷彩(めいさい) the colors that mislead = camouflage.
