    MJ will be legal next year where your at?

    We have MJ stores every where here. We've been legal for @ 2 yrs. I'm speculating why or how some one is entering ON the OFF ramp - I just don't understand how this wrong way is increasing or if any other state has a epidemic of wrong way??

    Theres always been drugs and alcohol around and always drug and alcohol affected drivers.
    Its probably a combination of many factors. This sorts of things spike up and down all the time . The media may also be concentrating on bringing the issue to the forefront for its own reasons as well.

    I agree with you
    I also thought about the media angle - but 30 wrong way.

    I was interested if any other state was experiencing wrong way drivers - do other states keep stats or is it a issue at all.
    This last wreck was horrible - I don't know how one could make this mistake?

    In California, the number goes up and down, as far as accidents caused by wrong way drivers. I didn't see a spike when I checked the numbers, although I haven't seen the numbers for this year. They say that here, 0.15% of collisions are caused by wrong wayers.

    We had another wrong way driver - this vehicle hit a tanker then became airborne and landed on the freeway below.
    How is this happening?
    What can be done to stop this?

    Another wrong way driver last night.
    Authorities pulled the vehicle over without incident.

    What is happening? How is this happening?

    It's a crazy statistic, though. There's got to be a reason. I'm assuming it's just where you are.

    Are they all getting it wrong at exactly the same place? Is there a usual warning sign that ISN'T in place at that point? Are they all going to the same place and something in the signs puts them wrong? These things have probably been looked at. But it is very peculiar.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."
