    That road was insane back in the 70's too. Nobody follows the speed limits that are set.

Guard Rails...

I guess the guard rails didn't make people drive safer after all.

    Well, since the accident occurred far away from where the guardrails were installed, I guess your stupid specualation is moot

        Mtn. Ranch Road is not the problem. The people that drive it are....Especially the people that have "moved to the country" say in the last 10 years, but do not respect this old wagon road, or think they can drive it like they did back home in the Bay Area or LA, or Stockton. Tailgating, cutting corners, driving too fast, and last but not least complaining about the road every chance they get. Wake up people, if not driven properly, it can be a very dangerous road. If driven properly it is a piece of cake........

This accident happened less than a half-mile above San Andreas. It wasn't even to the "really bad parts" or the guardrail curves. Too many people have lost their lives around this very sharp curve. I guess the grading they did there a few years ago hasn't helped much. So sad.
