KASOTA, MN (AP) - Motorists stuck in traffic may sometimes wish they were driving a tank.  A business in southern Minnesota offers them a chance to see what it is like.
 
Drive-a-Tank, near the town of Kasota, lets drivers take the controls of a British tank and drive it around a mile-long dirt course.  For an extra fee, they can roll over a car or smash through a trailer house.
 
Several hundred people have signed up for rides this year. Drivers say driving the tank is surprisingly easy and crushing a car is like being in your own action movie.
 
Owner Tony Borglum got the idea after seeing similar attractions in England. He started offering rides about three years ago and now has about 11 armored vehicles.
