State police in Connecticut are usually pulling over vehicles for going too fast.

But on Sunday, troopers stopped and ticketed 10 cars for going too slow, The Associated Press reported.

Police received several calls from angry motorists who complained about a group of cars, described as high-performance, racing-type cars slowing traffic to a crawl on the Wilbur Cross Parkway in New Haven and Hamden.

AP reported that police said the lead car was filming the other cars, which were blocking both lanes of the highway so no other vehicles could pass.

All 10 vehicles were stopped and drivers were given citations.

Drivers who had been stuck in the traffic slowdown thanked troopers verbally and by honking their horns, according to the AP.
