What a joke they're making of this. The reason for this crash is California's criminal negligence.Read More Obviously the "distance" between opposing traffic traveling at 80 MPH doesn't matter. A "K" rail between the two vehicles would have PREVENTED this crash, undoubtedly. But Ca. would rather pay their public criminals outrages salaries, than invest a little of that money on HIGHWAY SAFETY. I hope all the families of the crash victims know that they need to SUE THE HELL OUT OF the state of California .

These boats are filled with pot from giant drug organizations that would lose billions of dollars ifRead More pot (among other drugs) was legal. Legalize and this goes away.
Saltwater April 8, 2014 at 06:19 am
Sorry. I just don't believe that legalization will eliminate the criminal element from the potRead More trade.
John April 8, 2014 at 10:24 am
Our state is also great at regulation so ponder this. Legalize the use of marijuana. The stateRead More grows it, packages it, and sells it via state approved outlets. Only state produced strands are legal. Quality of what is used for it's growth is controlled. Just imagine the money our state would have. No more drug runs from the South. No more of our environment being poisoned including our national parks. Addiction centers paid for by the industry, roads can be fixed, homeless can be fed. Do it!

This road closure was handled very poorly! The Highway patrol made everyone drive about 5 miles upRead More to the problem then told us to turn around. No signs, no report on the radio. I called the highway patrol and they said they were short staffed and later when I needed to go back ivcalled to see if it was still closed and their computers were down and they ccould not give me an update. What a nightmare driving Latigo cyn, very windey and cars all over the road.
