AUSTIN (KXAN) — A digital traffic sign has been hacked at Rio Grande and 24th Street.

The hackers changed the sign’s language to read “OU Still Sucks.” In a town that is home to the University of Texas, this is a phrase that has been uttered at numerous football games.

The private contractor working on the public works department project has sent an engineer to fix the sign.

This is not the first time a traffic sign has fallen prey to hackers. A few years ago a sign along MoPac was hacked claiming drivers should watch out for the zombie apocalypse.
