Police say a wrong-way driver ended up going 18 miles on an interstate in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre reports (http://bit.ly/S4zLIf ) police say traffic was light when it happened around 5:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day, and no one was hurt. Police responded after getting calls about a vehicle going at high speeds the wrong direction on Interstate 81 north.

Troopers say they tried unsuccessfully to get the driver’s attention using emergency lights and a spot light. Authorities say she was eventually stopped using a roadblock in Laflin, about 18 miles from where she started in Dickson City.

Anyone ever see the barrier at the rental car lots or parking lots?

Drive the wrong way and you’ll get a few feet and then you;ll need new tires.

Why are these roadways unprotected?

Seems simple enough to me.
