Since the dawn of the internet, online dating, and camera phones, it has become commonplace to be asked to send nudes photos, but drivers on Highway 92 in Pine Knot, Kentucky were in for a surprise when a construction road sign was making the request.
As part of a contracted construction project through McCreary and Whitley Counties, near the Tennessee/Kentucky border, driver Trevon Stephens noticed the naughty sign on his way to work on January 9th. He told news outlets after realizing what the sign said that he could tell it was “clearly hacked.”
Officials are not sure how long the request was on the screen but quickly turned it off once they became aware of what had happened. They believe that the password-protected sign had been remotely hacked and the message was nothing more than a prank. The construction company contracted for the job said that none of its employees had any part in it.
Road officials were also quick to ensure the public that they were not asking for nude pictures from anyone.
After seeing that road sign, if someone didn’t know any better, they might think for a minute that things got out of control on the Bourbon Trail, as Kentucky is home to favorites like Jim Beam, Makers Mark, and Wild Turkey.
But I guess this is what happens when rednecks in Kentucky learn how to use a computer.
