  1. Am I the only one who sees the obvious? on January 8, 2020 at 12:43 pm

    I would be contacting a lawyer. It’s that bridge. It is in a curve…never gets treated for freezing…until AFTER an accident occurs. Dumbest design ever.

      What would you say?
      “I was driving too fast around an icy curve and I want to sue”

      Talk about obvious; there is a sign: Watch for ice on bridge

    • Not so obvious on January 8, 2020 at 7:05 pm

      Maybe don’t drive too fast for road conditions, might be a better start.

        He/she did not think of that. Too obvious

        She was going slow. I didn’t realize you were in the car with her when it happened.

    I agree 100%. That bridge never gets treated and it’s crap.

    Travelled that road an hour earlier at 05:45. You could see none of the local roads had been treated. There’s a big sign as you approach that bridge that’s says “beware bridge freezes before road”. Given the amount of rain the day/night before and the fact it’s on a curve I eased off the gas and coasted over it. Was doing 30 mph in the 40 mph limit by the time I got off the bridge section. Someone shot past me doing over 40 mph – probably thinking what a pussy I was. I don’t care. If you don’t drive with due regard to the conditions you are asking for trouble regardless of what vehicle you drive. A couple of years ago I was in North Carolina during a big freeze and one morning saw about 8 vehicles that had crashed off the road. 7 of them were Pick-up trucks. Presumably they thought their 4 x 4s and big tires gave them immunity from the laws of physics. Still see the same dumb driving by Pick-up trucks around here when it snows.

      Wasnt in this case. She was going slow literally just got on the road and the black ice caught her truck. Still shocks me how everyone believes the only way you can crash on black ice is from speeding. Speed isnt always a factor.

    If the State Police would put a speed camera there,some of these accidents would stop.I just hope and pray the people were not injured to bad.
