  • Seems that there sure were a lot of traffic collisions this afternoon across our region.

    Hope everyone involved is not seriously injured and that folks have insurance!

    Pretty crazy traffic behavior of late. Far too many folks on their cell phones, speeding when they really should slow down a bit and with all the rock slides, cracked pavement and puddled water it is a recipe for disaster.

    Thank you EMS/First Responders who put their lives on the line when they respond to a MVA. Folks slow down and look ahead for you may come upon an accident and we don’t want another one because you are on your cell phone.

  • What do you expect. Humboldt County – where everyone goes fast to get nowhere.
