Confusing Signage

which way? Legible London is an exhibit on now at the New London Architecture centre. Apparently, people take the subway for very short distances over there because the city can be near impossible to navigate: many people use the Tube map to navigate above ground, and the street signs are a confusing mishmash of different fonts and styles, and sometimes contradictory information (see photo, more examples here).
So, Torontonians, we ask of you: should we substitute charm for legibility? Does our city have any examples of such confusion? (perhaps the signs at the corner of Bloor and Borden are still turned around, but maybe they’ve been righted). And and what distance would you forego the subway to walk instead?
