Driving through or getting stuck in a wet cement is no laughing matter. It can get cars damaged, it ruins public property and wastes taxpayers’ money, and puts lives in danger,

Caught on Camera

Live Leak meantime shared a video of a luxury car that drove through the wet cement of a barricaded road repair.

Traffic cones were out for everyone else but apparently this guy thought he could get through traffic sooner if he zipped through the cones. He sat in his car until guys working on the road could get him out. He ruined the road the city workers had been working on.”
