Zombie Apocalypse Warning In St. John's.
Commuters in the St. John's area who might have been expecting a heads-up about construction delays were instead warned about something else: zombies.
"Zombie invasion! Run!" said one of the messages that appeared on an electronic traffic sign positioned near Windsor Lake, one of the main water supplies in St. John's.
The sign, which had been expected to advise motorists of construction that started Monday on Portugal Cove Road, had been programmed with other messages, including "Expect apocalyptic doom!"
A final message said, "Rule #2: Double tap!", a line from the 2009 Woody Harrelson comedy Zombieland.
City crews later arrived to turn off the sign, and then carted it away.

These road signs generally have a code-lock feature that prevents the message from being adjusted, however crews are notorious for not changing those from the default, leaving them open for anyone who knows it to mess with them. There have been dozens of cases of this occurring. I find it particularly amusing, both for the messages themselves and because people need to learn to secure things that should be secured.

Well, it's good to be well informed! I'll bet they wouldn't be that efficient if it was for real.

That was amusing. Got a good chuckle.

Something tells me the little hacker after changing the message probably changed the default code so they couldn't change it back

Somebody did the same thing the other day in northrn KY, apparently these signs are easy to hack.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
