    heard it was nothing short of carnage driving from breck to south park on friday
    3-5 hour commutes that should have taken a half hour
    trucks with no chains, traffic stopped for hours at a time
    people blindly following their gps without a thought to where it was taking them

    I just passed you heading EB. Looked like a totalled 4runner on the west side getting loaded on a tow truck.


    Currently on a detour on Floyd Hill. Some big potholes in the EB right lane on the overpass.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    Some observations from last Sat (noonish) Copper to Vail adventure...

    Snowy and windy as fuck, moderate traffic. But Vail pass was OPEN!

    Semi with trailer fish tailing (no chains).

    Semi jumping into left lane, no blinker, to pass another semi (with chains. This caused a chain reaction of clusterfuk and a few near misses behind him.

    No one would pass the semi after he got back into the right lane. Creating the pass on right in between trucks situation.

    It was because of sun glare, according to the news. It happens all the time now... for "safety concerns".

    According to the local Fox News traffic lady, it's been temporarily closed due to sun glare the last two days. I'm just reporting what she reports.

    I70 EB at Floyd Hill has been temporarily closing a bunch lately due to sun glare.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    To be fair, it's the local Fox News station.... not the main Faux News shit show.

    There used to be highschool students getting hurt from the sun glare and they'd change the time of school start because of it. At a certain times of year/day, it is extremely brutal. You literally have the sun at road horizon level dead ahead. Sunshade won't help and even if your windshield is perfectly clean, unpitted, (haha!) and you have super dark glasses, you still can't really see.

    36 out of Boulder can be like that in the winter. Total blindness during sunrise. Last year, I was headed up the hill, doing 70mph, into the glare, which got particularly blinding. The dillhole in front of me (that I couldn't see initially because sun) was so freaked out by it that he slowed to about 15mph and stayed in the lane. I almost jammed my Sequoia at a relative speed of 50mph into the back of his puny sedan.

    If you can't keep going at a reasonable speed, get off the fucking road and on to the shoulder. Or at least -- snicker -- put on your hazards. Don't stay in your lane and do 50mph under the speed limit.

    I almost got in a super bad wreck today right after the tunnel heading west. It was around 7:45am, just cold enough that the road was slick, some precipitation to make it worse. Some dipshit had wrecked a few curves down from the tunnel. Got out and left their car in the middle of the road, across the left lane and part of the middle lane. Just stood there on the side of the road watching people almost hit their car. I was coming down the hill in the left lane, someone right next to me in the middle lane. Road was too slick to slam on the brakes, so I had to gun it and shoot for the space between the car parked in the middle of the interstate and the car on my right. luckily the car on my right moved over at the last possible second. I missed the wrecked car by inches. Was uncontrollably shaking for about 10 minutes afterwards. one of the closest calls I've ever had.

    There's a reason the speed limit is 60 coming down the hill.

    Glad you didn't wreck.

    So lemme get this straight. You almost hit him because you couldn't see and it was his fault?

    That sun glare is real. Yeah, doing 15 mph is slow, indeed. I get that.

    This sounds suspiciously however, like news reports of 70 car pileups on I-5 in California being caused by the fog and not by following too closely while overdriving your visibility.

    Since when is it good practice to drive beyond your ability to react?

    Fuck, scary shit. Why the fuck wouldn’t he move his car into the BREAK DOWN LANE?
