North Carolina Drivers Get Traffic Alerts That Offend Women and Supporters of Obamacare – The System Wasn't Hacked, but Someone WAS Fired


"Stay home because of..."

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has apologized and fired a contractor after sending out bizarre traffic alert messages warning drivers to "Stay home because of women drivers, rain, and Obamacare."

The most obvious conclusion -- that it was a prank or the system was hacked -- is actually not what happened at all. NCDOT claims a contractor was performing a number of routine tests on the system, but forgot to turn off the external feed while doing so.

The contractor was immediately fired.
