Highway 49 safety

It is time to put some positive reminder into people traveling Highway 49.

I travel Highway 49, Alta Sierra to town almost daily. I can see and feel the speed limit of 55 mph is being pushed. Following too close then becomes a factor. Headlights on, three out of 10 at best.

Maybe the CHP and the radar guns again?
