The last thing we need is for freeways to become inaccessible during a major emergency, but that’s exactly what would happen.
Whether this is because a protest turns ugly or a natural disaster is on its way, freeways quickly become clogged with people and cars.
Protesters often take to freeways in a purposeful attempt to block them. This certainly gets attention, but it typically doesn’t put their cause in a good light.
If you find yourself in one of these situations, your best bet is to get away from the madness as quickly as possible. Don’t forget that the police aren’t exactly going to take the time to determine who is at fault if the protest turns unruly. By staying in the area, you put yourself in danger.
