In effort to make things a little bit safer along the roadway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge, construction crews moved the last San Francisco exit back 1,000 feet before the bridge last week. The shift allowed more room for safety shoulders as part of the ongoing Doyle Drive/Presidio Parkway reconstruction project.
But while trying to make it safer, crews also confounded some drivers who wreaked havoc on the morning commute when making a dangerous and illegal U-turn to avoid driving across the bridge.
CBS News has video proof of today's bout of confusion. Watch:
Fortunately, nobody was severely injured, but it has caused some concern -- and negative press. Officials with the Presidio Parkway told CBS News that they did warn drivers about the new exit via an e-mail blast last week.
After this morning's crash, construction crews went ahead and extended concrete barrier segments to keep drivers from making anymore foolish U-turns.
