Very sad, it seems like every week there is a fatal traffic accident in SLO county

Too many people drive like maniacs on this road. On Saturday we had someone pass us on the right turn out lane.

And nothing is done about reckless drivers, drunk or otherwise, yet we see them everyday, playing NASCAR on public roads. How many times have you had to step on the brakes as you were the last car passed and cut off before inevitable traffic kept us all at pretty much the same speed?. No incentive. Easier, and more revenue, to sit on the side of the 101 and issue $500 tickets to drivers doing 72 in a 65.
