Tales from the open, err… closed, road

If Americans were better at improv, state troopers might write fewer tickets.

Alas, we’re not. The Minnesota State Patrol Facebook page carries this tale today.


Recently, an MSP Sergeant found this semi truck driving thru a closed construction zone on Hwy 212 and Hwy 75 in Lac Qui Parle County. The driver drove around numerous barricades, and after nearly making it all the way through the zone, he met up with a trooper. The driver, who was heading back home to Mississippi, said he didn’t know the road was closed. He was cited for driving around a barricade. Great work!!

Mississippi, you say?
