Car Park – "F*** Off we’re full!"

Drivers in the busy town of Crawley had a probably dropped their early morning bacon sandwiches yesterday as they drove into town looking for a parking spot. As reported in the Register and local rag the West Sussex Argus, hackers managed to gain access to the computer system controlling the electronic display of free parking spaces and changed the displayed text to a message telling people to F*** off! Having been to Crawley, I can tell you that, on the whole that’s pretty good advice.

Anyway, despite the fact the rude message was up for two hours, apparently only two people complained about the unorthodox information, so it’s safe to assume that nobody pays much attention to this kind of board, even if it were displaying useful info.
