HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Holland man's bad driving decision caused $40,000 in damage to a city road and now his insurance company has to pay for it. The driver ignored warning signs and drove onto wet pavement where a major construction project was going on.
All year round, there's something that slows drivers down, from slick roads in the winter, to road work in the summer. Most drivers try to avoid construction zones altogether, but on Washington Avenue this summer, one man did just the opposite.
"It just one of those regrettable things that he wanted to get across Washington and unfortunately he elected to go through that construction zone," says Brian White, interim director of Holland Transportation Services.
The driver went through the Chemical Bank parking lot, around construction signs, and onto the wet pavement.
