Warning signs are there for a reason, drivers

Warning signs are there for a reason, drivers

On Wednesday afternoon (April 30), I observed some totally irresponsible behavior when I saw some people drive around a "Road Closed" sign on Piedmont Drive in Spotsylvania County, put there to prevent drivers from entering an area of high water over the roadway.

Half of the drownings in these types of storms are from people driving into water over roadways!

And in this case responsible action had been taken by the county to prevent such an occurrence.

What were these drivers thinking? Please observe the safety warnings, and don't attempt to drive through high water across roadways. Good grief!
