'No Latinos,' 'No Tacos' road sign hacked

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE COUNTY Long-standing digital construction signs along the Palmetto Expressway on Tuesday morning were apparently hacked to flash two messages: “No Latinos” and “No Tacos.”

WTVJ-Ch. 6 reports the signs on the northbound side of the 826, right near the Northwest 25th Street exit, have since been turned to face away from the road.

There is speculation that someone hacked into the signs overnight. Officials say the signs are password-protected.

It’s not known how long the signs were flashing the messages. By 6 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol had turned the signs around.

No other details were immediately available.
