  1. That area of the road is incredibly dangerous and is residents have brought it up to the city multiple times and they’ve said they need 5 major accidents to happen before they address it. I hope that family sues, the road is unsafe.

  2. Hope thathe family teaches their surviving members to use seatbelts and pay attention to driving.
    There is nothing wrong withat area. The road is not unsafe to competent drivers.
