‘We can’t make this stuff up’: Drivers ignore warning signs and drive straight into a SINKHOLE

The California Highway Patrol has officially lost its patience with 'stupid drivers' who ignored road signs and drove into a sinkhole, roasting them on Facebook.

A law enforcement agency has officially lost its patience with ‘stupid drivers’ who ignore road signs. 

And we can understand why. 

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has taken to Facebook to vent after finding a VW Passat wedged in a sinkhole after the driver ignored clear warning signs.

“This can’t be real,” CHP said.

“We’re at a loss for words. If only there were signs and barriers that could have prevented this,” they said sarcastically.

Just two days later, on January 28, the CHP was back with another post. 


This time, the driver of a white Ford F-150 ignored warning signs and drove around barriers, only to find himself wedged in the very same sinkhole. 

And just like the Volkswagen Passat, the F-150 was no match for the massive gap in the road.

Alongside a photo of the truck in the sinkhole, the CHP also uploaded a photo of the signs that very clearly warned drivers the road was closed.

Photos posted to the Facebook page show the entire hood smashed in from the collision. 

“It happened again. We can’t make this stuff up,” CHP said. 

“This was 100 percent preventable. There is no excuse. The signs are clear, visible, and unobstructed.” 

Along with roasting the driver on Facebook, CHP also issued them with a citation. 

With the citation and massive repair bill, it was an expensive mistake for the driver.

CHP wasn’t done just yet. 

The California Highway Patrol in Tracy also posted a photo of a Honda CR-V submerged in flood waters. 

The photo was especially hilarious because there was not one, but two warning signs just a meter away from the car alerting drivers to the fact that the road was closed due to flooding. 

“‘Road closed’ signs are not recommendations,” CHP said. 

“They are strategically placed for your safety.”

Unsurprisingly the various posts attracted thousands of comments from people slamming those behind the wheel as ‘stupid drivers’.

“Gotta laugh at some stupidity right there, unbelievable,” one said. 

“Play stupid games, win stupid prizes,” another said.
