This part of the 210 frwy has to be possessed. It's either an accident, a smei snarling traffic,the sheriffs dept chasing some idiot, a guy pushing his g/f out of the car onto the frwy,someone wanting to commit suicide,or some idiot shooting his g/f and disposing of the body right out the car door onto the frwy..................what next?

And both directions are possessed! If anything happens on the 210, it's always right around Lowell.

If that section of the 210 is possessed, what can be said about the 405!?

This is also a stretch of freeway where many truck drivers pull off to rest -- leading to the theory that many drivers get drowsy driving the freeway in this area. Most of the accidents directly involve semis. Others involve passenger vehicles traveling longer distances and passing through this stretch. Drowsiness brings out distracted, unrestrained, nutty behavior in some drivers. What can we do to keep drivers awake, alert and focused on driving through this section of the 210? The 210 through Tujunga/Sun Valley and the 405 through Sepulveda pass have several things in common: they are semi rural, lightly populated areas where the highway climbs over a pass in the midst of densely populated areas.
