Pranksters in at least three states are messing with electronic road signs meant to warn motorists of possible traffic problems by putting drivers on notice about Nazi zombies and raptors. And highway safety officials aren’t amused.
The latest breach came Tuesday during the morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along southbound Interstate 255 to read, “DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES.”
And signs in Austin, Texas, recently flashed: “NAZI ZOMBIES! RUN!!!” and “ZOMBIES IN AREA! RUN.”
Though kinda amusing, I guess I’ve gotta agree that this is out of line.
A reader emails:
It’s not a metaphorical sign of the coming apocalypse as we usually refer to it. It’s an actual sign of the coming apocalypse.
The last one, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks, won’t be out until June but is available for pre-order.
