tram sign

Since the new trams went into service in Essen I’ve wanted to correct this strange sign on the door that obviously lacks punctuation. This is my try. The original is on the left, the correction on the right. The joke is based on the meaning of “Notlösung” which can mean “emergency unlocking” (it probably does in this case but this meaning is quite far-fetched) and “emergency solution”. My guess is that the sign should read “Emergency solution: door misuse (prohibited)”.
