Ok guys, I know we always talk about performance teck, and how to make our car handle better and all that good stuff.
But I want to do a little eye opener to everyone out there.
I live on highway 18 that runs from san bernardino ca to lucerne valley ca.
This road is an amazing road to cruse on, beautiful sights, and amazing curves you can take so fast and a lot of fun.
We have curves here that are know as dead mans curves and a few others, you are driving on the edge of a cliff with about a 200' drop off.
Every year we lose many lives to A**whole drivers that run people off the road and sometimes off the mountain.
Well just recently a friend of my family just died on this road.
He was only 22 and died a day after his 22nd birthday.
Great athlete great student in school and just out on the road following his friends in other cars.
Well he got cut off and ran onto the other side of the road and went head on with a simi.
Doesn't matter how great of a driver you are, anything can happen in a split second!!

Sorry to hear about your loss. Did you find out who cut him off?

Nathan21 08-07-2013 04:45 PM

Nope just know the kid was doing about 100 in a 40mph curve that isn't that bad but people think if they cut you off it will slow you down but this is what happens

It's been a long time since I've been up that stretch of the 18 going into Big Bear, too much traffic whenever it was an option for my travels. But I always used to take the 18 from Victorville up the backside. Once the road gets up into the mountains it is a fun two lane road!

yeah it is amazing ride!
