MERCED, California (KSEE/KGPE) — A digital traffic sign was hacked in Merced on Thursday night.
The sign was on the side of a parking lot where construction was taking place.
The following morning a contractor found the hacked signboard with the message “Trump 2020” and “Make America Great” slogans on it.
“Someone overnight hacked one of our contractor’s signboards and changed the message,” a city official said. “When the contractor found out about it in the morning, they promptly changed the sign back.”
It is unknown who hacked the sign.
