Drivers heading to their Christmas vacations on the Garden State Parkway northbound this morning were treated to a surprise near exit 135: Someone changed the sign from "Clark / Westfield" to "Clark Griswold," the well-loved dad played by Chevy Chase in the National Lampoon classic Christmas Vacation.
State Police Sgt. Gregory Williams confirmed that the sign change was real and not the work of Photoshop.
"We are aware it's floating around the Internet," Williams said. "It was called in this morning, and the Turnpike Authority took it down."
