I'm sorry for your loss.

Is the road unsafe, or are there impatient drivers making it so? Let's solve the right problem.

The last death and injury was from a drink driver correct?

I also think this stems from a larger traffic problem forcing more people into off the known route directions.

Wasn't it just a year or two ago that cal trans was prepping niles canyon for some major road improvements to make it safer until the "tree huggers" stepped in crying and whining and everything was put on hold, thank you "tree huggers" how can you sleep at night?
