Road sign woos Wisconsin motorists

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) - A digital construction sign along a central Wisconsin interstate has been flashing a rock-inspired passionate message to passing motorists.

The sign near Stevens Point spelled out "Danger Danger," ‘'High Voltage," ‘'When We Touch, "When We Kiss," to rush-hour drivers Thursday.

The words are borrowed from the song "Danger! High Voltage" by the Detroit-based rock band Electric Six.

James Bierman, co-owner of Central State Signing, says a hacker must have changed the message board.

The black-and-orange construction sign was placed on Interstate 39 because the state Department of Transportation contracted with United Painting of Forest Junction to repaint several overpasses in the area.
