Napa artist admits to making fake drone signs
MARIN CITY, Calif. (KGO) -- A Napa artist has admitted he is the person behind a series of fake highway signs in Marin County.
The signs read "speed enforced by drones" and show a missile firing from the craft.
They appeared last week on Highway 101 and Highway 37.
Artist Stephen Whisler, 59, says the prank is a political statement on the use of drones for spying and warfare.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating and Whisler could face a penalty for putting up unauthorized signs.
