LOOMIS, Calif. (November 14, 2012)--A prankster is changing the message on an electronic traffic warning sign in Northern California that’s supposed to advise motorists that a road in the Placer County city of Loomis will be closed for pipeline construction.
Last week, the message on the sign read, "Smoke Weed Everyday."
"Caution Loose Gorilla!” has also replaced the highway advisory.
Placer County Water Agency Senior Engineer Tony Firenzi told the Bee it took skill to change the message.
The unknown hacker needed a keyboard and had to bypass some systems.
