New Directions for Traffic Control--US Blamed

I'm sure that the thought has crossed your mind...

Commuters driving to work were greeted by an obscene message when they arrived at Crawley, West Sussex, on Thursday morning.

Digital roadside signs, which usually give information about parking availability, instead urged visitors to "F*** off" after hackers gained remote access to the displays. Three of the 11 Variable Message Signs on approach roads to the town carried the expletive.

"Under the message were the initials TOTSE, suggesting that this was the work of the
US-based online community of that name
. Why they picked on Crawley, I have no idea."

If it's US-based, they should tell the drivers to drive on the correct side of the road...
