A painter in Los Angeles kept missing
his exit for the I-5 on the 110 highway,
so he did his research, climbed up the
overhead sign, and changed it himself
without anyone noticing.
This is Richard Ankrom. He couldn’t find his damn exit, cuz it wasn’t properly labelled.
So he took life by the balls, like any self-respecting Californian would do, and used his sign-painting expertise to fix it himself.
He called it ‘guerilla public service.’ Even got himself an outfit to look official. It worked, obvi.
Caltrans investigated, but the sign was actually up to code. They left it there for 8 years before they made an updated sign.
You can do anything if you’re wearing a hi-vis vest and hard hat.
