someone was walking on the freeway? Suicide?
Stoned? Drunk? Family will probably sue the driver.
AT the overpass? Was the body ON the freeway NEAR the overpass??
No reason for entire freeway to be detoured on 580 in the middle of
the night IF she was ON the
OVERPASS. I doubt it would or should be the driver's fault regardless. Freeways are for cars.
I am so sick of people walking behind my car in Safeway lot..I couldn't back out any more carefully than I do, but I cannot see either side that always has a van the size of a bus in it. As fast
as they walk, they are behind me when I see them....most show zero sign of caution or interest in protecting their own safety... in this shared space. Why must I act responsibly, in they do not.
Freeways Are For Cars:
If you can't see, then you can't go.
So, try backing into the parking space for better visibility when you pull out, or inching out so that everyone has more reaction time.
It was on the freeway near the Stoneridge overpass.
All of the preceding posts are disgusting. Something is very seriously wrong with you. A person is dead and their family is grieving, and you are complaining about being inconvenienced and pet peeves. Instead of posting, why dont you have that same conversation verbatim and face to face with your kids,family, friends and co-workers about being inconvenienced because someone is dead and see how that works for you. Get therapy
It's not simply the inconvenience, by a long shot. It is the expense to taxpayers. Police science, fire science, paramedic science, highway patrol science, and most other highly reputed sciences will tell you that there are far too many personnel from overlapping agencies just milling around, gumming up traffic, and hoping for the big overtime check that they can convert into a spiked retirement pension. It's enough to make most of us puke. And people wonder why potholes aren't being filled in what with all the union public servants shirking their servitude by bilking taxpayers out of their hard-earned money.
Arnold, please refrain from using this human tragedy to rant about your political "science" and personal frustration. A man has died; his kids are fatherless tonight. Please be respectful of the family in their time of mourning. Like June, I hope you use this unfortunate event to dialogue with friends/family about what matters most in life rather than the trivia of which you so passionately write. I hope that in discussing this or other event/s regarding human loss, you not marinate in economic pragmatism; rather, examine the emotional impact on those directly involved. I hope that your children (assuming you have any) have not inherited/acquired your deficient emotional quotient.
