Yup, that’s what the sign said.
Commuters along Highway 20 got a chuckle this week when someone reprogrammed an electronic Caltrans sign to read “Fat Cock”, rather than the safety message it was intended to display.
A reader told us the sign was near the intersection of State Route 20 and Road 144 where Caltrans is working on the Calpella Two Bridge Replacement project.
The steps required to reprogram electronic road signs are easily accessed online but those caught in the act could face criminal charges of felony vandalism
This is not the first time a Caltrans sign has been hacked. In 2017, a sign near Davis, California was hijacked to display the message “Trump Has Herpes”.
