PINE KNOT, Ky. — Drivers in Whitley County, Kentucky, got a shock while driving on Highway 92 when a road sign made a pretty personal demand.

An electronic road sign in Pine Knot asked drivers to "send nudes." Officials with the Kentucky Transportation say that the sign was hacked and was part of a contracted construction project.

The sign was quickly turned off by administrators. The system belonged to McCreary County and was password protected, but someone was able to crack the code.

A WLEX viewer sent a photo saying he noticed the sign on his commute home and had to stop to take photos.
