Trumped by road sign ‘hack’

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

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.
