It’s not the streets, the cars, the laws, nor the intersections. We have a people problem. Wild-wild-west, people here in the AV are driving 85 mph on surface streets, 70 down school zones. They can’t be bothered stopping for pedestrians, in crosswalks. People here are lawless. People here are so lawless here in the Antelope Valley, the Walmart people have to stock half their store inventory, in locked cabinets …

This brick wall is NOTORIOUS for attracting crashes! They repair it and BOOM! It happens again and again! The homeowners insurance must be sky high.

Mustang doing mustang things
Sooo…….the Chevy turned in front of the mustang is the only thing known at the time of the collusion, and its mustang’s doing mustang things??? Speed may have been a factor, but that means it also may have been not. So a chevy turns in front of a mustang and u decide it’s the mustang’s fault……hmmmmm…….
… granted, people who drive pony cars are selfish, self-important, ignorant, poorly educated, and they don’t know beans about automotive engineering. In this case, had you read the article, the accident was clearly the other guy’s fault –
