Loves Park Police Department Uses Humor to Catch Fleeing Subject
Well it appears I'm not the only one who got in trouble for driving into oncoming traffic today. Before you say anything, let me explain what happened.
I was leaving the McDonald's on East State Street and Longwood, right across the street from the Wendy's, and as I'm leaving the parking lot, I took a right on Longwood. A man crossing the street looked at me and started shaking his head and I thought to myself, "I wonder what his problem is?"
Then I started to look around and I was so confused, this was the weirdest intersection I've ever seen; I even took photos so I could take a second look later. That's when I noticed what I did wrong and why I was getting those dirty looks- I was going the wrong way down a one way. That explains why there were no stop lights on Longwood. Face palm.
Thankfully, I was able to take a left onto East State and not get hit by a car; you really can't see oncoming traffic when the bus is dropping riders off at Wendy's. I quickly sped off, in hopes of avoiding further embarrassment and a ticket.
Seems I have better luck than the other driver who was busted driving into oncoming traffic on Apline earlier today. Take a look at this post from the Loves Park Police Department and try not to laugh.
Anyone missing a car?
There has been an equally hilarious update from the Loves Park PD, they say, " UPDATE on "WE HAVE YOUR CAR" "None of Your Business" called to inquire how to get the car back. Starting with your name might be a nice start..."
