The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) has issued 38 news releases so far this winter announcing interstate closures, said Julie Stevenson, the strategic communications coordinator for the SDDOT.
“I think last year, it was a total of four to six,” Stevenson said on the morning of March 22 [Rae Yost, “SD Interstate Closures Pass 30 This Year,” KELO-TV, 2023.03.22].
How dare South Dakota infringe on freedom and stop people from living normal lives just because of a little natural disaster? Everybody’s driving pickup trucks; let lovers of freedom shift into four-wheel drive and go as far as they can, whether it’s the Coffee Cup at Summit or a cold and lonely ditch before South Shore. That’s the real American way!
