"We have a lot of problems with people wanting to drive around the road closed barriers," said Lt. Weinzapfel. "Just while we've been sitting here, how many cars have we seen trying to come through here?"
Dozens of cars actually. It's a cold game of chicken, whether to give into the warning signs or give into your 'gutsy' side, drive through or make a U-turn.
Along Telephone road, the flood waters creeped over only to freeze over. The road remains closed to traffic.
"If you get stranded out here, it's cold," said Lt. Weinzapfel. "We had one stranded out here for about two hours before we could get to them. It was a long two hours for them. They were two cold ladies by the time we got to them."
You may not be stuck forever, butt it sure will feel like it. From dawn till dusk, the problem is predictable. This part of Warrick County is prone to frequent flooding. But the lack of common sense makes no sense for those who know it well.
"There's no way I'm going through this and people were just buzzing right through me," said Misty Byrne, who lives nearby. "And I said ya'll are crazy!"
"A big part of this is just using common sense and obeying the law that says you don't go around a road closed sign," said Lt. Weinzapfel.
Sheriff's deputies say you need to watch out for the ditches alongside the road. Even though at first glance the ditches might not look deep, some of them are four to six feet deep.
