  1. Up here in yuba county they cut the trees down along the freeways at the off ramps etc. Seems some attorneys have taken money with lawsuits that the trees caused the deaths and are a hazard. Stupid PC BS. Don’t speed for the conditions, pay attention to your driving and not your stupid phone, don’t drink and drive, don’t do drugs and this kind of $hit won’t happen, then again their are the Darwin awards for a reason.
