Traffic sign hacking in Florida

Peter Rojas
Lois Frankel

This week's story of a public electronic board being hacked comes to us from West Palm Beach, where local mayor Lois Frankel's plan to deliver a sympathetic message ("I Am Mad Too! - Lois") to drivers stuck in traffic via a roadside sign sort of backfired when someone, uh, adjusted to sign to read something a little more obscene (the Pam Beach Post is a little too couth to say what it was). The best part is that whoever changed the sign also locked the metal box that houses the keyboard so that no one could change the sign, they had to unplug it altogether. Not quite as mischievous as whoever changed electronic sign at an NYC subway station to read "Pretty Girls Don't Ride the Subway" but we'll take what we can get.
