Crosswalk Satire

I read through all of "Pedestrian Hacker Group Releases Crosswalk Button Hacks" before the light began to dawn that it was satire, not news. I submit, however, that my confusion is a comment on the sad state of liberty in the US, rather than an indication that I need another cup of tea.

Municipal officials across the country worry that the release of these hacks could result in traffic jams and pedestrian confusion.
. . .
The FBI has shut down the button hack site citing violations of the DMCA and fears that terrorists might use the hacks to "cross the streets of America at will.

Though I do, in fact, need another cup of tea.
