The road as is, is safe. I have driven it up and down several years at the safe posted limit and well within my driving abilities and have never had a problem. The road is always free of debris. At the end of the day, it's no the road! It's the driver... Always the driver.

Every time I drive that road I am pushed along going up and coming down. (and I am going the speed limit, in the Rt. lane) Every person has their own agenda of where they have to get to. People do not care about others in front or behind them, which also means they will fly in and out of lanes to get in front of the next car. I have seen it all over the city. People are on the freeway with no lights, blinkers are a thing of the past. If you want to weave in and out of traffic trying to get just one more car ahead. SLOW DOWN! Don't care what the speed limit says. Just maybe it's unsafe to go even the posted limit.

First, I hope for a speedy recovery for the driver. Second, Drivers if there a sign that says Road Closed/Blocked, Don't go around it thinking youre going to go through. Couldn't even guess how many cars got turned around after driving through the Carl's Jr. parking lot. Third, Drive Carefully. Doesn't matter what road you are on. Follow the speed limit, Don't drive under the influence of drink, drugs, or medication, be courteous to other drivers even if they are not, practice defensive (not offensive) driving. Its better to get where you're going than to be right.

Steve Thank God for having his hand on your son and sparing his life what a Blessing! My prayers and love go out to him for a fast recovery. As for all the other comments it surprises me that everyone seems to want to blame or find fault why not celebrate what God has done! He spared someone's life! Praise him! Is everyone so carnal and negative oh and let's not forget Judgemental. What happened? To forgiveness? Last time I checked Jesus died so we could all be forgiven? Does that only apply to some after your done getting reamed cause God forbid somebody wants to spew their ugly mean words of bitterness just because they think they have the right to make a point. My God says hate the sin love the sinner. You don't destroy a person because they have an accident it's an accident! What if that was your son or your daughter or your wife would you like somebody speaking harsh ugly words I think not. I don't want to offend anyone but please be sensitive to especially to Steve and his family this is a very difficult time and they need our love and support may God Bless all of you
