This only seems right to me. Nothing but common sense really.
From KTUU in Anchorage:
Several electronic road construction signs around Anchorage were hacked late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Signs that normally display closure and detour information, like the one on Minnesota Drive near 100th Avenue, were changed to read “Impeach Obama.” That particular sign wasn’t fixed until sometime between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Thursday.
It happened because DOT says it doesn’t lock the boxes on the signs that hold the message control pad
The DOT responds:
“I’m sure somebody thought it was a pretty funny joke but we try to convey a lot of important information with these signs,” said Tim Croghan, a regional construction engineer for DOT.
Some might find the message not only important, but essential.
