  1. Ya, Vasco is bad. It’s even worse now that county public works has so little time to maintain it properly. There is an electric warning sign just before Camino Diablo that is illegible with what it’s warning along with other things. I hope everyone recovers.

  2. Need a center divider. NOW. True, it won’t stop tailgating , but head ons are usually much worse
