PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - A gator stopping traffic? It's just another day in Florida.
Rafael Omar said he and some others spotted a juvenile alligator in the area of 49 Street and 118 Ave North on Saturday.
When it became clear the reptile wanted to cross the busy road, Omar and other bystanders got the attention of drivers and stopped traffic.
The young gator ended up crossing safely, Omar said.
