'Not Smart': Driver Takes Out Traffic Signal Right Outside Police Department

A driver who ran over a traffic signal at an intersection across from the Wausau Police Department was, perhaps unsurprisingly, soon apprehended for operating a vehicle while impaired.

Footage released by Wausau Police Department shows the moment a car runs over a blinking red light at Grand Avenue and East Thomas Street in the city.

“This driver decided to take out a traffic signal and keep on rolling. Not smart to do anywhere, but especially in front of our police station,” the department said.

The driver continued for a few blocks before they were arrested, police said. Credit: Wausau Police Department via Storyful
