According to this reddit title an intern does these funny signs. I have nothing else to go off of other than the title, so not sure if it's true or not

I happened to see a guy with the license plate "CPT GUY" right as I was passing under one of these signs too...what are the odds.

Just realized that Willy Sorenson, the guy who started these traffic messages, is the husband of the secretary/nurse at our school. I overheard her talking about it in the lounge yesterday. She said he was called by the New York Times the other day. Also said that it was making them some good money.

I feel like I could do just as well as him at it if that was my sole purpose at my job.
