Road Sign Hacked To Display A Blunt Message About Trump

The sign displayed the message to passing motorists for about two hours.

The sign was being used by the city’s Department of Transportation, but belongs to a company called National Barricade, The Seattle Times reported. Company service manager June Hatfield said the message was up for about two hours. 

Hatfield warned that altering signs can have consequences, including crashes. 

Local CBS station KIRO 7 said the sign was changed by a vandal, not a city employee. The message was changed and a new padlock put into place to prevent it from happening again.
