    There are so many aggressive and irresponsible drivers in Sacramento now. I lived here almost all my life and it’s really getting out of hand.
    Watt avenue has basicly become a freeway. The posted speed is about 45m/h but often people drive 60 or even faster; I’ve never seen a traffic ticket being given on Watt Avenue nor do I see a CHP presence. What I have seen is some very nasty accidents and decapitation.
    If nothing is done it will get worse.

    This is an incomplete story. Where on Watt Ave. did the crash occur?
    What time did the crash occur?
