Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

This place is not far from my mom's house... Someone is always getting killed here.

Here's the deal... It's WIDE! 4 lanes ach way plus 2 more on a service-type road. That's 12 lanes. And a ton of traffic, double parking, the dreaded NYC busses, trucks, local deliveries, massive apartments and stores...

And the icing on the cake... old people. too old to cross 12 lanes of traffic in 2 minutes. And too old to be happy to make 6 lanes and wait for the next green light to complete the trip. So they go thinking "they will stop". But they don't.

There is no solution. If you build an overpass, these people wont use it. Too many stairs or too high to climb. I think of it as natural selection. I know.... hell is waiting for me with open arms.

I wish I could remember the name and exact location of the road, but when I was a kid, we visited some friends in South Carolina and they took us to see "Wreck Row" . . . straight highway, no curves, about 4 lanes each direction, plus a median strip, no grass, ditch, or barrier though.  Overpass across it.

No real reason for ANYTHING to happen, but . . . it's like it had the ol' hoodoo voodoo whammy on it.  We drove out to see it, and a crew was clearing up frozen sides of beef from a tractor trailer that had flipped (it was still there) and there was evidence of another recent accident on the other side as well.

So we're standing up on the overpass's walkway, have been there for all of 10 minutes or so . . . and one car rearends another one.  Both in motion at the time . . . the rear car just overtook the front one and plowed into the back of it.  Strange chunk of road.
