The California Highway Patrol may have CHIPS on their freeways but on Monday afternoon Florida Highway Patrol troopers were trying to avoid CHOMPS on I-75.
FHP troopers were kept busy around 4 p.m. Monday trying to keep a 12-foot alligator off its namesake highway, Alligator Alley.
An FHP travel advisory shortly cautioned northbound interstate travelers to have caution around Mile Marker 78.
"Troopers are trying to keep this 12-foot from the Interstate 75 travel lanes @ mile marker 78 in Collier County on Alley! Please drive cautious," an FHP Tweet alerted.
