Software Error Confuses Drivers in England

In England, an electronic sign in Norwich, where the "Wroxham" road meets the "Sprowston" road, was affected by a bug that alerted drivers to roadworks more than 100 miles away. The sign, which was in place for several days, has since been switched off.
According to Norfolk County Council, the problem was caused by a software issue. According to the local authority, the sign should have been displaying information about the works at the Heartsease traffic circle, which is less than three kilometers away, and instead informed drivers of a road closure overnight in the Leicestershire village, preventing them from reaching Melton Mowbray - "This is a software problem with our contractor, who is trying to resolve the issue," said a spokesperson for the council.
