Broken: (and fixed) Los Angeles highway sign

Shelley Ross points out this intriguing story: a Los Angeles resident got so tired of a faulty highway sign, missing the mention of I-5 North, that he installed it himself. Here's a video.
Also detailed on this page (scroll down to the article):

For years, Richard Ankrom, 46, knew that the word "NORTH" should have been included over an emblem for Interstate 5, two miles before the exit from the Harbor Freeway.

Finally, last August, Akrom went to work donning a hard hat and orange reflective vest to avoid raising suspicion. His pickup truck had a logo on the side that read: Aesthetic De Construction.


that is cool as fsck!
