Pike Drivers Warned of ‘Zombies’

Drivers heading eastbound on Columbia Pike near S. Courthouse Road last night and this morning received an ominous warning courtesy of a hacked road sign.

“DANGER ZOMBIES AHEAD,” the sign read, startling some drivers en route to I-395 or the Pentagon.

It’s not the first electronic road sign in Arlington to be surreptitiously reprogrammed by local pranksters. Two years ago, on April 20, 2012, a similar sign near the Madison Community Center in North Arlington was reprogrammed to display “HAPPY 420!”
