Trumped by road sign ‘hack’
Electronic construction signs in the Dallas area appear to have been hacked, displaying messages calling Donald Trump a reptile and imploring early morning commuters to take a day off work. The portable signs along Interstate 30 and elsewhere flashed messages early yesterday including, "Donald Trump is a ... shape shifting lizard!" Another message read, "Bernie for president," referring to Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. A further sign said: "Work is cancelled. Go back home." The signs appear to be ones used by the Texas Department of Transportation ( TxDOT). TxDOT told Dallas-Fort Worth broadcaster KRLD that there’s no humour in what the hackers did. The agency said the messages bumped warnings to motorists about nearby construction zones.
