|Another little note I found on a local newspaper recently.
Road signs warn about the presence of zombies.
The most recent infraction occured last Tuesday during rush hour near Collinsville, Illinois. On an electronic road sign appeared the legend, "ROAD CLOSED DUE TO ZOMBIES"

Computer hackers gained access to the highway signaling system, and altered the electronic signs to warn of the presence of zombies on the roads. The joke is not funny for those in charge of public security in the zone.

In Indianapolis and Austin, Texas, were reported similar pranks.
The Department of Transport in Illinois is afraid these pranks could distract drivers from real dangers and might put in danger the crews of road workers.
In Illinois, damaging or altering a road sign is punished with a 250 dollars fine.
