  1. Two days in a row. Do people not know how to drive on Kirker Pass? SLOW DOWN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

  2. 100mph down kicker pass and they were clowning around with another car?

    I hope they all die and save society the trouble.

  3. Shouldn’t wish death on people regardless if their stupidity

  4. Kirker Pass is a deathtrap! What civil engineering dropout designed that road? It’s way too steep and people keep riding their brakes going down instead of putting it in second gear! Whoever has jurisdiction over that road needs to have it shut down and a large chunk of it LEVELED OFF!

  6. Kirker Pass is a deathtrap! What civil engineering dropout designed that road? It’s way too steep and needs to be redesigned with a large portion at it’s apex leveled off. Also, people tend to ride their brakes going down the steep part instead of putting their cars in second gear.
