Malfunctioning crosswalk sign gives pedestrians ‘the finger’

July 21st, 2011 by Staff

AMARILLO, Texas - A mystery circuit problem has been infecting downtown street lights in Amarillo, Texas, and it’s caused birds to nest in the pedestrian crosswalk sign.

Not the birds found trees or the wild, but the wildly offense birds you usually see in road rage.

The City of Amarillo says it’s a manufacturing problem that causes a glitch and produces offensive hand gestures.

They’ve replaced at least six crosswalk signs.

The city says they are fixing the lights as soon as reports come in.
