You have a choice, Minnesota. You can either avoid the pothole craters or you can get a ticket for straying outside your lane. What will it be?
A few days after a man was hurt when his airbag deployed when driving into/over a pothole, another man decided to swerve around one, and ended up with a ticket, Fox 9 News reports this morning.
“He said, ‘I have you on video,’ and I said, ‘Good! I’m so glad you do because it will show — it will show you, it will show anyone who looks at it — that I was clearly moving my way through this pothole region,'” Allen Moe of Rosemount said.
You might want to stay out of Rosemount until someone has a chat with police there.
