The signs along Interstate 30 in Dallas were hacked over the course of 48 hours on Monday and early Tuesday. The signs, which are meant to warn drivers about road construction, were all eventually turned off.
So far, no suspects have been named in the hacking, nor has it been confirmed if the hack was done onsite or remotely.

A spokesperson for the TxDOT told local station KRLD that there was nothing funny about the hack, and that the messages deleted important warnings regarding nearby construction zones.

The idea of reptilian humanoids is often propagated by conspiracy theorists who believe that shape-shifting aliens control the Earth through political power.
In 2011, comedian Louis C.K. appeared on the Opie and Anthony radio show and repeatedly questioned former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld whether he or former Vice President Dick Cheney were actually lizard people who enjoy eating human flesh.
Rumsfeld did not outright deny being a lizard, causing C.K. to run with the political appointee’s answer as an admission of guilt.
