Pranksters in at least three states are corrupting electronic road signs meant to warn drivers of road work. The latest breach came Tuesday during the morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along Interstate 255 to read, “Daily lane closures due to zombies.” A day earlier in Hamilton County, Ind., the electronic board in a construction zone warned drivers of “Raptors ahead — Caution.” And signs in Austin, Tex., recently flashed: “Zombies in area! Run.” The authorities have not figured out how the signs are being reached. (AP)

We are big Zombie fans here in Austin. A few years back when American Idol auditions came to town, me and 20 some-odd other people went down there dressed as the living dead. Demanding “Brains!” & “Fame!”
They gave us a golden ticket and then asked us to leave the premises.
