Speeders win again

According to CHP Officer Cary McGagin, the stretch of Highway 49 between the Bear River bridge and Combie Road was widened because “with only two lanes, there were often accidents on the highway because frustrated drivers would attempt to pass in no-passing zones.”

Looks like the nutbag speeders won out again. On the two-lane stretches that still exist, I’ll be the old geezer doing 55. If you want to get by me, you’ll have to wait until they widen 49 all the way to Nevada City. Believe me, it’s a-comin’.
