Far too often we her of accidents on the highway, and often Rainbow Summit. I have driven this highway for my entire life. I feel comfortable driving it. However at Rainbow Summit, no matter what vehicle I am driving. I still find that with the turns, the pull from the decline of the road, and driving the “posted” speed limit, that it is one of the more awkward section to drive. And I think I am a compitent driver.
I would like to know if there would be support for there to be a lower posted speed limit. Say 70 Kmh or maybe even 60 kmh. Yes people will still go over it, but it will give new drivers, and not local driver who do not know the road ahead an idea of what to drive.
Also from memory there are long stretches with little or no barriers on the cliff side, I for one would give up “prestine view” to save even just one life.
We all know that road signs and other measures will not prevent poor choices which cause unfortunate results. But my hopes are that we can effect some change.
