T or D?

Recently I saw painted on the rear end of a large truck on the PA Turnpike:

I suppose this is more or less "Sehe[n] dich spaeter", a German literal
translation for "See you later" (I think). I don't know why the spelling
deformities, nor why the truck had this slogan.

Maybe this is another example of confusion between "t" and "d" in speech,
although in what dialect(s)/language(s)/context I'm not sure.
