Roll overs in Buellton are starting to be as common as head-ons on the Pass.
And I really wonder why?
Because other than the Three Bridges S-turns south of B-town, the rest of the freeway in and out of Buellton is pretty much wide open and in a straight line.
So how do you flip yourself on a straight flat road?
