PORTLAND, Maine ?? Drivers may have gotten a chuckle out of an electronic message board in Maine warning of zombies, but city officials were not amused.
The sign at a Portland road construction site was changed by a hacker to read ??Warning Zombies Ahead!? on Wednesday morning. It originally read ??Night work 8 pm-6 am. Expect delays.?
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.
