Maine drivers warned of zombie danger
February 17. 2013 9:34AM
The sign at a Portland road construction site was changed by a hacker to read ‚??Warning Zombies Ahead!‚?Ě on Wednesday morning. It originally read ‚??Night work 8 pm-6 am. Expect delays.‚?Ě
City spokeswoman Nicole Clegg says the signs are a safety precaution and changing it could have led to driver distraction.
She tells The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/SSDZ51) tampering with a safety device is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
She says it‚??s not clear who changed the sign, but it‚??s not the first time it has happened.
