    signs

    Hi there,
    I read some of the translated signs but they are wrong. Could you change them into correct English.

    1. 'Emergency exit' sign at China's airport:
    Do not use in peacetime.
    2. On French train:
    Do not push yourself out of the window.
    3. Above sink in toilet on train:
    Don't throw things in the pond.
    4. Sign warning against use of toilet while train is in station:
    Do not be occupying while stablising.
    5. In Japanese car park:
    Please get a punch at window No 2.
    6. Prague sign:
    Non-stop parking.
    7. China:
    When you leave car, please turn off door and window, take your valuable object.
