Opening Arguments

What's that in the road? A head?

One of the ways pranskers amuse themselves these days is to hack electronic road signs. One near the Univeristy of Texas was hacked with the messages "Caution! Zombines Ahead!" abd "Nazi Zombies! Run!!!" Now, one in Indiana has been hacked:

Motorists said Monday that a sign at a construction zone on Keystone Avenue in Carmel read: "Raptors Ahead Caution," WRTV, Indianapolis, reported Monday.

"It's kind of crazy. I'm totally confused," one motorist said. "I'm kind of expecting ... dinosaurs to run down the road, or something."

Nancy Heck, a spokeswoman for the city of Carmel, said the sign is owned by contractor Highway Technologies, which operates the programmable signs in the construction.

Even those of us who don't want to create public havoc can have a little fun with sign generators online. Lots of places to find them -- here's one.
