Re: Caltrans Sharp S-curve on the Bay Bridge claims first life

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Its gross mistake of speed loving people, but What i feel is that if
its adviced to follow 40km/hr then also engineer should take a margin
of 10km/hr, to save those who love to break and bend rules !
