Drivers Risked Hefty Fine By Dodging Pylons

Motorists Allegedly Made Attempts To Drive On A Closed Highway Wednesday Afternoon

Despite pylons, “Road Closed” signage, and the flashing lights of emergency vehicles, some drivers still made an attempt. Clearview Fire Chief Colin Shewell was at the point where Highway 26 was closed due to a collision near Sunnidale Corners Wednesday afternoon, and says some motorists tried to drive on the highway.

In fact, as Rock 95’s Brett Glover was on the phone with Chief Shewell Wednesday afternoon, another vehicle apparently tried to eek through the closure and the chief had to raise his voice at them. They were promptly turned around, and got off lucky; driving on a closed road can earn you a fine of $110.
