Road Sign is Hacked with Anti-Trump Message

On the eve of September 11, an electronic road sign in the city of Modesto, California was hacked and defaced with a message against the President of the United States Donald Trump. The first person to notice the deface was Makayla Victoria, a Modesto resident who shared the clip on her Twitter account showing the message stating that “Trump a Bit*h.”

Stanislaus County Public Works Director Matt Machado told CBS that “We have typos from time to time, contractors will type in a word wrong, but you can see the intent is there, just a misspelling.”

On the other hand, the Highways staff can’t fix the issue until replacement parts arrive.

Hacking electronic road signs has become a popular trend. Previously, in two separate incidents, electronic road signs were defaced with messages in favor and against the President. In one of the hacks, the message urged users to vote for Donald Trump while the other asked for his impeachment.
