Traffic At A Turtle’s Pace

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Life is not always fast pace in the Mother Lode.  Motorists learned that this morning when they faced a unique roadblock.  A tortoise took its time crossing Phoenix Lake Road near Meadow Brook Drive this morning around 9:00 am.  Traffic came to a standstill as patient motorists let the turtle take its time getting to the other side.

A special thanks to our community news partner Shaan French for sending in these photos.
