Stupid motorists, beware

`The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will invoke the state’s “stupid motorist law” for the first time, after a Cave Creek man drove around traffic barricades and tried to cross a flooded street last week in his Hummer.

The driver, Paul Zalewski, 47, reportedly ignored warnings not to enter Creek Canyon Road in Cave Creek on Friday.

But “Hummers are made to float,” sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Paul Chagolla said. “Other people told him not to go in there, and he did it anyway,” endangering himself and six passengers, including three children.’
