A road sign in Northern California is catching drivers' attention.

Transportation officials say someone hacked into a traffic sign off a roadway in Dixon and changed the message to read: "Free Hookers Ahead."

While it may seem like a harmless joke, transportation officials say it will cost taxpayers because they had to pay to get it changed.

Officials say they are now trying to track down whoever pulled the prank.
