On my drive up to Ocean Park this weekend, I was stopped on HWY 30, just after the Kittredge Road turnoff, by the clean-up of an accident scene. Someone (or someTHING, dun, dun, DUH!) had driven into a power pole with more than a little force. It was snapped in half, but also munched pretty severely several feet up from the break. The light was down on the street, and all the traffic lights were out for several intersections.
And nobody stopped, or even slowed at any of these intersections! Just barreled on through, like there was no traffic waiting to cross from the other direction. And, in fact, there wasn't, but nobody checked to see, or ANYTHING! 'Course, this was at about six a.m. so cars were pretty thin on the ground, but still!
