Wiggly white lines left drivers confused

Crooked and curving lines on a major road in Fairfax County, Virginia, caused confusion for drivers on Sunday and Monday.

The problem occurred on Interstate 66 between Centreville and Gainesville. Drivers who experienced the wiggly lines described the traffic as "horrific" and said they took alternate roads to avoid accidents

The Virginia Department of Transportation said temporary lane striping that crews put down peeled up and moved, and they were working to fix the problem.

The agency also said it was looking into what caused the striping to come unstuck.
