What Happens to Those Who Ignore the Road Closed Sign
The Washington State Department of Transportation showed what happens when trucker ignore road signs.
In a January 7 social media post, WSDOT prosecuted a truck driver after he passed a closed road sign and got stuck in the White Pass in inclement weather.
“Road Closed signs apply to everyone. This is why. On Thursday evening this semi went through the road closure on White Pass and got stuck. Our crews had to rescue the occupants, take them to safety and then later today guide the truck down behind our blower. Our crews are working really hard to get things open, and things like this don’t help. So please, if you see a road closed sign, don’t ignore it.”
The White Pass was still closed as of 1:30 pm, on Monday, but WSDOT says they expect to open the pass soon.
