i used to drive that way to work but go 275 now because the vets is so backed up even at 6:30AM. we went that way the other day and the new curve surprised me in the car. it's very deceptive and there is no warning as it is just after the rise over memorial (southbound).
when they get done with both phases that area should have some smooth-flowing traffic, but now it's just complicating the already dismal traffic issues.

Yes it is.......I have talked to MANY who have said the same thing..most people when i told them we wrecked on veterans they knew exactly where befor i told them......Just crazy so far i know of 3 bike accident sthere and then that crash website theres several more accidents.......Does anyone know if theres any number to call to have more signs posted or anything to avoid this from happening?????

just SLOW DOWN
just SLOW DOWN
I was thinking the same thing. Maybe a big reflective sign that says "SLOW DOWN" with a picture of a squid under it

It has nothing to do with a squid ive talked to several people on here who dont consider themselves as squids and they have said the same thing....I swear i made this post to warn people to be cautios....You guys all act like you dont ride for the adrenaline and fun..Granted theres a time and a place forverrything..but our accident happened late at night where theres no cars on the road and what used to be a straightaway..it was a mistake it had nothing to do with being a squid or experience...It was an accident....Even the NON SQUIDS have accidents....Thats all riding its not if you go down its when....Ive rode 5 years now accident free.....And this accident clearley states in the accident report i hit his debree......Also had a huge construction nail in my tire......Anyways before i start up a whole new bag of SH*T Here on TSB I will get back to the reason i posted this.......BE CAREFULL Just a warning! Too bad you read this post and didnt get to go for a ride down veterans to learn for yourself like several other have!!!
