Police in the small NJ town of Scooterville (pop 248) have reported travel mayhem as visitors pour into the town for the 3rd Annual World Dungaree Championships.
Sherriff Teddy Cockspur, the only law enforcement officer in the parish, said that the traffic snare ups have resulted in gridlock.
''A Volvo station wagon is to blame'' hued Cockspur ''I spotted the vehicle entering the town limits, many residents had never seen traffic like this, old Ma Cockspur rushed out on the sidewalk to get a better view, Tommy Cockspur, the local Top Hat maker and owner of a highly successful mattress mail order business had to calm her down!''
Traffic was not the only problem.
''The municipal car park, which is the world's smallest with only one space was packed'' explained Cockspur ''It was just a nightmare''
The eventual winner of the event, Billy Cockspur, whose dungaree design wowed the judge, Jon Cockspur, was amazed by the interest in the competition. 'To have someone from out of town be in Scooterville is fantastic'' claimed the 60 year old descendant of inventor Larry Cockspur, who famously killed himself at the Scooterville Zoo in the mid 1980's.
Meanwhile, lost motorist Dave Spencer, from Newark, managed to fix his GPS and continue on his journey west.
