This from Cincinnati.com:
As if orange barrels, speed traps and distracted motorists sharing the road weren’t stressful enough, drivers on southbound Interstate 71/75 Thursday morning were given another warning – beware of the undead.
An electronic highway sign on the interstate near the Ky. 18 exit read: “Nightly lane closures, zombies ahead.”
The sign was apparently hacked, said Nancy Wood, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokeswoman.
There's been a spate of these "zombie" sign hacks across the country recently, and the media seems to be generally treating it with kid gloves. Me, I don't consider any form of hacking to be a laughing matter, nor do I have tolerance for those who try to glorify it with terms like "hacktivism", etc.
The sign was supposed to warn drivers of the danger of road work ahead. If whoever changed the message is caught, I hope they throw the book at him so hard it dents his head.
