What The Honk: Train tracks are not turning lanes

Trooper Steve discerns the improper from the inconsiderate

ORLANDO, Fla. – I definitely love being on the streets with you, but the honks, I’ve determined, are just about everywhere.

It's refreshing to see some good old bad parking on What The Honk. (Copyright 2023 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

We haven’t seen bad parking in a while on “What The Honk,” so here’s a Toyota for you. Two for one, if you look closer.

Remember, this is a loading zone and under no circumstance a parking space.

News 6 Photojournalist “Goose” sent this one in and it’s completely self-explanatory. Never are you to use a train track as a turning lane in order for you to get turned around in a construction zone.

This was off of Orange Blossom Trail, where the new Packing District is located. If traffic wasn’t already a mess, imagine the crash.

I have to be completely honest. If I was on scene at this crash and this driver did this, I probably would have lost my mind.

The driver approached the crash scene, drove over the cones and then sped away. By the way, yes, the St. Cloud Police Department did stop him and he got a ticket.
