Traffic was crawling on the New Jersey Turnpike Friday -- as was the little guy causing the backup.
New Jersey State Troopers rescued a snapping turtle from the highway near Interchange 15W.
"You just never know what’s causing a traffic delay—a broken down car, an accident, debris in the road, or maybe, just maybe, a tortoise," police said in a news release.
"A couple of Troops made sure this guy was safely removed from the roadway before allowing traffic back into the lane."
