    you guys are so good at staying on top of these accidents.. thank you so much.. for so many reasons.. one being we can certainly notice an area that has a lot of accidents.. before, we barely heard about any.. so how would we recognize if an area is prone and needs adjusting.. thanks.

      While I agree with you about areas that need adjusting, and there are plenty of them, the fact is that the driver is the one who must make adjustments. Until the streets/roads/highway departments get around to making the adjustments, it is us, the driver that has to match their driving to conditions.
