Man Ticketed For Directing Traffic

 California - When a major traffic light in the area went out, Alan Ehrlich took matters into his own hands, directing traffic at Fair Oaks and Huntington avenues. “I grabbed a bright orange shirt that I have and a couple of orange safety flags. I took it upon myself to help get motorists through that intersection faster,” said Ehrlich. Before Ehrlich stepped in, traffic was backed up for more than a mile and it took more than 30 minutes to get through the busy intersection. Ehrlich said the incident wasn’t the first and that the light goes out regularly. Police responded to the scene and told Ehrlich to stop and issued him a ticket, but never stepped into direct traffic themselves.  More
