Neither the public notices broadcast via the media nor the drums on site were enough to stop this motorist from driving across on Friday the section of the Windward Highway at Argyle that has been closed to vehicular traffic.

The Ministry of Transport and Works closed the road on Thursday after it collapses as a result of earth movement in the area, the second time in two years.

Below are some photos of the area taken on Friday.
