Idiot of the Week Award Winner!

I got this from http://www.delawareonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080513/NEWS/80513049. I think he either needs new glasses or to lose his license!

A 70-year-old New Jersey man was cited Monday afternoon after he allegedly made an illegal U-turn onto northbound I-95 and plowed into the side of a trooper's patrol car.

The driver, Lugene Smith, of Pleasantville, was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.

State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Whitmarsh said a trooper in a fully marked 2008 Ford Crown Victoria was driving north on I-95 in the left lane approaching the service area at about 3:26 p.m. when Smith, who was traveling in the left lane of southbound I-95, disregarded a posted sign and drove through a paved crossover "Marked For Emergency Vehicles Only."

Whitmarsh said the Ford Explorer that Smith was operating drove directly into the side of the trooper's car.

Both vehicles then pulled off to the right shoulder, where Smith was cited.
