    Next time I get the chance, I`m switching one to say something IAB related.

    Of course I`ll take pics. I didn`t have a camera phone last time I messed with one, but I do now.

    ...and for our next lesson, we can learn how to change the lights at fast-moving intersections so they`ll all be green at the same time.

    /facepalm

    Please don`t drat with the signs.

    If the sign were about high voltage, I wouldn`t change the content, necessarily. Just the way it`s presented....maybe in Electric Six lyrics.

    (I know it`s been done before. That was awesome.)

    I used to set these things up. NOTHING in this pic is correct. More than one company produces the computers, and each of these is different. EVERY single one I have worked on has had a password that was not `DOTS`. The only way to reset the systems were to disconnect the battery blocks for minutes at a time.

    Obvious safety note: don`t mess with the sign when it has an important message (like the ice warning). But there are plenty of times when these signs are left in place with no message at all, or with a routine reminder to use seatbelts. No reason not to try to put up a more interesting message at such times. Unless you`re worried about being caught in the act, of course.
