A driver in Nebraska who ignored traffic control devices Wednesday and proceeded to drive over wet concrete will pay heavily for their mistake, a city official said.
Thomas Shafer, a Public Works spokesperson for the city of Lincoln told KETV that traffic was delayed while the vehicle was extricated from the wet concrete. The driver will be responsible for the cost of repairs to the damaged road, which Shafer said will total approximately $10,000, including labor, materials and cleanup from the incident.
Officials encourage drivers to obey traffic control devices such as barriers, along with construction signs, to prevent such incidents.
