A portable traffic sign — the kind that usually warns motorists of road work or lane closures — instead advised: “Smoke weed erryday.”
The sign, near the intersection of Minnesota Avenue and Clay Street, drew a steady stream of attention from passers-by, several of whom stopped and jumped out of their cars to take photos.
Meanwhile its companion sign a few blocks away, reading “Jackson Ave closed to thru traffic,” attracted no undue attention.
“It seems like typical Winter Park vandalism to me,” said 19-year-old Andrew Layton of College Park. He said he suspected the sign was the work of local high-school students.
“You see guides on the Internet on how to hack into these things,” said the Edgewater grad.
One passer-by claimed his brother was the culprit. After taking a picture, he offered a bit of criticism of his work:
“Dude, that’s bad grammar.”
