Lynda Wilson didn’t think WSDOT’s “U Suck” sign was very funny

wilsonState Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, wants to know how Washington State Department of Transportation uses the phrase “U Suck” in its training.

On Friday, Wilson sent a letter to Roger Millar, the department’s secretary, raising concerns about an incident last week where the message “U Suck” was displayed on an overhead traffic sign on Interstate 5. The department has apologized for the incident and chalked it up to a “training error.”

But in her letter, Wilson requested more information from the department. She asked who was doing the training, who was being trained and for what position and why the phrase “U Suck” is acceptable in the training.

Here’s her full letter:
