While your argument of the illegality of driving off the road is valid, sympathy for the nut who did the spikig is not.
It seems that it is more than just illegal to spike a road - it is life-threatening to those in the vehicle that is being spiked.
What if there had been only one car traveling the route that was spiked - and that was not found for longer than the occupents had water? An illegal track around a detour is not a capital offense and doing something in the harsh environment of Death Valley that could conceivably kill someone is more than reckless - it is criminal.
It is up to the legal law-keepers to enforce a road closure and not the mentaly imbalanced who see their actions as rational. An illegal act is not the answer to another illegal act.
