A road construction sign in Hillsborough County, Florida was hacked and flashed a very obscene message to motorists passing by.
Normally, the sign would have let drivers know that lanes would be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday for a road construction project that was underway. Unfortunately, someone was able to hack into the sign and change the message.
According to WFTS, Sarah Carpenter was on her way home from a drive-in movie theater when she spotted the new message. Riding with her was her 11-year-old brother and her son who is 6.
“We are driving and I look over and I have to do a double take,” Carpenter told WFTS. “I am like what does that say?”
To her surprise, the sign read “F**k Her Right In The P***y.”
Carpenter was attempting to merge into another lane when she saw the sign and became distracted. Her brother was sitting in the front seat and he managed to see the sign before they passed it.
“He’s like, ‘Did that sign say what I think it says?’ And I have my 6-year-old in the back seat trying to sound it out,” she said.
Fortunately, she was able to quickly distract her son before he figured out the sign in its entirety.
The company responsible for the sign said that the passwords had been changed and the keyboard was removed from the sign, however the control panel wasn’t locked. The manager for Acme Barricades said that this isn’t the first problem they have had with vandalism on this project either.
As for Carpenter, she said that she’s nervous about driving that particular route again with her young son.
“Don’t want to run into that when he can actually read.”
