Sign of the times

Big shout out to the ZOMBIE DEFENSE LEAGUE who last week tried to raise the awareness of the threat of Zed to drivers around Austin. The story is here.

Zombies are coming

Zombies are coming




While some have speculated this is the work of ‘expert computer hackers’ I have my doubts that this is the sort of level of expertise needed. A few online searchers turned up –

“Apparently, while most road sign control pads are placed in a lock box, that box is rarely actually locked. And while most road signs are under password protection, that password is most generally just the default code “DOTS”—or you can easily reset the password by holding “shift” and “control” while typing “DIPY” (so that it just defaults to “DOTS” again)”.

Of course I would never condone such irresponsible behaviour.

Unless of course there were Zombies about.

Or it was time for zombie drill.

Or I was bored and had some spare time.



  1. You’re thinking of getting a traffic sign to put up in your yard for this very purpose, aren’t you?

  2. Good to know the system works!!!

  3. The funny part is, had I seen that on the side of the road, even here in Michigan, my first thought would have been “Barnesm!!”
