Motorist Takes Dog for Walk on Colorado Interstate Amid Traffic Backup

A dog owner stuck in traffic in central Colorado late on Wednesday, December 28, was spotted taking their pet for a walk next to a line of cars, footage posted to Twitter shows.

This video was captured by Ian Curtis, who said he recorded it on Interstate 70 near Idaho Springs on Wednesday night while driving to Denver.

“It was supposed to be a three-hour drive home that ended up being 12 hours,” Curtis told Storyful. “That specific area where I filmed – we didn’t move a single inch for about three hours!” he added.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, there were multiple incidents of stalled traffic in the area due to adverse weather conditions. Credit: Ian Curtis via Storyful
