CHP: No serious incidents mar holiday

Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 - 11:15 a.m. - No serious collisions marred this Labor Day weekend, local CHP Officer Tim Kilcrease said today.

CHP officers made two DUI arrests during the Friday-through-Monday enforcement period. One took place on Friday. The second arrest took place at 2:40 a.m. on Saturday, after an unidentified motorist hit a fence near the intersection of Allred Road and Highway 49 South. No injuries were reported.

In one other minor incident, a Yosemite tourist traveling to the Park from San Diego damaged a stop sign when he or she made a last-minute turn onto Triangle Road from Highway 49 South while attempting to follow GPS instructions, Kilcrease said. The incident took place on Saturday.

Following a GPS has turned

Following a GPS has turned into a disaster more than once for me. Tourists still drive up past my brother's home at the bottom of the Big Incline #2 because their GPS sends them up that way. Even in the best of times they wouldn't have made it up that road. There's a sign on El Portal Road by the Post Office that directs tourists back to 140 after their GPS tries to get them to Yosemite via Foresta. Have to laugh sometimes.
