Zombie warning signs surprise US drivers

Warning signs alerting motorists to keep an eye out for zombies have appeared along a road in the US.

According to Denver News, pranksters managed to interfere with an electronic warning sign system on Baseline Road, in Boulder, Colorado, so that it read "Zombies Ahead". It should have conveyed a more useful message: "Shoulder work Feb. 28 through June".

Driver Rick Barron told the newspaper: "My first thought was, 'Did that really say Zombies Ahead?'"

"And my second thought was 'I've been in Boulder almost 30 years. If there were naked zombies riding bicycles with pumpkins on their heads, I guess we'd be used to it," he said.

The 'Zombies Ahead' prank is apparently very popular in the US, and has been seen up and down the country.

Hackers access the control panel of the warning signs system and alter the messages with the help of instructions that are widely available on the internet.

The Denver incident happened because some of the control boxes were left unlocked, allowing hackers easy access.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800461706-ADNFCR
