Cite them and charge them for the rescue....a chopper is about $150 million per hour.

"But the app showed the road open" lame excuse.With all the closure "stuff"blocking the road,give me a break.

These people are either stupid or just can't obey rules or both.

Charge them for the rescue and a ticket for failing to obey a lawful road closure.

Add in the cost of two stranded, somewhat used motorcycles, which I doubt insurance will cover, and it all adds up to an expensive lark.

There is closed and there is closed. Like the road closed signs on the Saline Valley road. More of a drive at your own risk kind of sign. When they toss up the concrete barriers thats a good sign they're serious about the closure.
