Naked people keep tying up traffic for HOURS. Why does this keep happening?
1. Naked Woman Sits On Top Of Big Rig In Houston, Texas
In our top story rush hour commuters in Houston, Texas were forced to let their employers know they were going to be a tad late to work this past Monday morning. A 25 year-old naked woman sitting on top of an 18-wheeler truck tied up traffic along Highway 290 for over two hours. She gave gawkers quite a show.
Sometimes you’re driving and something lands on your car.
The traffic striptease began around 9AM after the woman was believed to have been involved in a three car crash. Instead of exchanging insurance information, with the other drivers she exchanged her pants for her birthday suit and climbed up the big rig. While the car accident hadn’t been that bad, the train wreck was just beginning.

The truck needed a good wash anyway.
She began dancing on the truck and after other motorists called 911 police and the fire department showed up to attempt to get to get the woman down. She cursed at them, ranting that the FBI and CIA were after her as she continued to dance.
Around noon fire fighters used a firetruck ladder to safely get her down, although the same might not be said for their lunch. She is not being charged with a crime and is currently being evaluated.

In December 2014, a naked man ran in and out of traffic along Interstate 8 in San Diego around 11AM. OK, actually he was wearing his socks.

7. Chinese Student Rolls Around Naked In Traffic
In February 2016 a university student was rejected on Valentine’s Day when he professed his love to his professor. The jilted young man decided the best way to make himself feel better was not with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s but to go out into traffic, take off all of his clothes and roll around in the street. Luckily for Chinese commuters that day, this stunt only held up traffic for a half an hour.
