    • OMG says:

      No the people must have been blind!!! People go way too fast on the roads.

    • Mr. Happy says:

      Every time I see bikes overtaking at high speed on blind corners, I can’t believe it. What kind of “second sight” do these boys have, that they can see around corners?

      Of course it will never happen, but if overtaking PERIOD was illegal……

    This happens all the time on this road. Idiots over take another vehicle, the person pulling out of Salt Kettle and are heading east only look west to see if there is traffic coming not expecting someone to be on there side of the road.
