Alligator Blocking Traffic is Just Another Day in Louisiana

If an alligator is blocking traffic, you find another way. 

In a crazy video posted by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office down in Louisiana, a rather large alligator is caught on camera strolling down the highway very early in the morning. Normally, this isn't that big of a deal, however, this critter was blocking traffic very effectively. When cases like this emerge, it's best to just wait them out!

Here's the video. How would you have handled this situation?

If that was me, I probably just would have put it in park and waited it out also. Who knows though, maybe that gator was in it for the long haul waiting on the sun for a perfect place to relax the day away.

Thankfully, I live in Indiana. All we have to worry about are deer as the biggest threat to our cars. Down in the bayou, apparently they have to not only worry about hitting a gator, but also getting eaten by it if they get out of their vehicle to check for damage.

However, I'd be interested to see how many car vs gator incidents actually occur. My guess, it's not very many.
