    COME ON PEOPLE, WAKE UP, IT’S RAINING AND THE ROADS ARE SLICK WITH A OILEY FILM FROM MONTHS OF NO RAIN AT ALL. NO MATTER IF YOU HAVE GOOD OR NEW BRAKES OR TIRES, YOU ARE ON A SLIPPERY SLIDE FOR AWHILE UNTIL THE OIL FILM GETS WASHED OFF. REMEMBER, THE LIFE YOU SAVE “MAY JUST BE YOUR OWN” . A word of caution to everyone out there in this typical Humboldt County weather that has been missing for quite some time.

  • That hole area is a traffic accident.

  • People drive too fast and lack courtesy for others.

    Maybe they could add some round abouts.

  • That area should not be that dangerous. Both road are not high speed roads.
