If you thought we were past drivers making driving blunders because they follow the GPS, but not common sense, you'd be wrong.

Behold, the power of the GPS, it can make people drive into wet cement.

The Fort Dodge, Iowa, Police Department says they ticketed a 37-year-old Webster City woman after she drove past barriers and right into a fresh patch of concrete. What'd they get her for? Not Dough-Headedness, which should be a charge, right? Nope, they went with failure to obey a traffic control device.

According to police reports, the crew working on the cement patch tried to stop her, but she just kept going. Why? She was following her GPS, and besides, she SWEARS there were people driving through that area with no problem.

I wonder if she asked to see the road crews manager? "How am I supposed to know what those barriers mean. You should have sent me an email explaining your plan for this area," I imagine her thinking.

LOOK: Highlighted Warrants for Goodhue Couny (as of August 25, 2021)

This week, just the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office shared warrants. They are selected by each office and do not necessarily represent "most wanted" in either county.

If you see any of these people, do not approach or attempt to apprehend them. Instead, in Olmsted County, during weekdays call 507-328-6830. After 5 PM and on weekends, call 507-328-6800. In Goodhue County, call 651-358-3155.

As always, in an emergency, call 911.

The goal from both offices is to create awareness so these individuals can be found.

This gallery is of individuals wanted as of August 25, 2021. If you are viewing this gallery at any time after that date, the warrants listed could be settled.
