Drivers are taking things into their own hands, making U-turns on Hwy. 212 in the vicinity of Hwy. 41.  Drivers in the eastbound side are heading over to the westbound side.

I've pulled this from an article I wrote earlier this year on this dangerous maneuver.

“You cannot drive across the median to turn around on a freeway, even if the freeway is blocked,” said Eric Roeske of the State Patrol. “That would be dangerous and illegal.”
