Residents are urged to obey all road closed signs and not drive around the barricades.
Vehicular traffic in storm damaged areas has increased dramatically with sightseers ignoring the road closed signs. This has placed utility workers, clean-up crews, and affected residents at risk as some of the roads are still only one lane. Utility crew vehicles are also utilizing parts of the roadways to get utilities restored. All motorists should stay away from the storm affected areas.
Beginning this weekend deputies will begin citing for driving on a closed roadway for those motorists who choose not to obey the road closed signs.
