The sheriff’s office has had reports of vehicles going around road closure signs, according to the release. Sheriff James Hudson Jr. said to be patient and to not put others in danger.

“Please do not go around road closure signs, as doing so is very dangerous and you are putting yourself at great risk of harm,” Hudson said in the release.
