  • So, the Samoa bridge(s) is no stranger to accidents and oddly enough usually on days when the weather conditions are not a factor. My theory is distracted driving…the view from the top of the two spans can be quite spectacular at the right time. Keep at least one eye on the road…two (or more) is better.

    • if the view is a distraction we should build a wall on the bridge to block the view in order to make the road safe and keep distractions away from drivers. if trucks are always being passed maybe have the trucks drive around and not use bridge, you know to build the bubble around folks …..

  • Idiots are always passing semi’s on the bridge. Can’t wait to get to the stop light..

    Hey Grasshopper, they are in a real big hurry to their own funeral, only trouble is, they usually take an innocent person or persons with them. Death on wheels and once an IDIOT, always (to the end) an IDIOT.

  • There’s traffic control there now for road work and when you are driving west looking into the sun you can’t see the signs or flagman at times

  • Wow!! Jeffersonian….Thank you Eldon,your right you can’t fix stupid…
