This is one of the reasons SECURITY CAMERAS are needed on Hwy 4 in both directions and they should be sophisticated enough to show high resolution. Actually, today security cameras are needed everywhere.

Yes, you would think the cameras would have been installed after the rock hit nurse in the exact same area while she was driving home after a long shift treating COVID-19 patients. Cameras are cheap. It is ridiculous.

I know the exact area and I avoid it as much as possible. Cameras need to be along ALL the freeways! People are getting nuttier and nuttier. Dash cams only help so much. We need high-end cameras mounted where they can best record these incidents. I hope someone saw this bozo and can identify them. Seeing what’s around you is part of the driving experience.
