  1. this is all too common on Highway 4 both east and west bound directions. vehicles at high rates of speed (100 mph +) whipping in and out of the lanes. I encounter it daily going to and from Pittsburg Bart; doesn’t matter the time of day either. Now and then I see CHP but that’s a rare sighting.

  2. they got what they deserved. at least no one else was involved only the idiot thank goodness.
