I was listening to the "vehicle over the side" accident on Monday evening and at first wondering if the vehicle over the side was just another old wreck. When it was determined not to be, I was wondering what happened. Then I heard there was five patients, a call for another ambulance. Then I heard someone say something about possible deaths. I wasn't sure if there were deaths or not. Even if I knew for sure I did not want to be the one to report them. I pretty much reported everything I heard and went to bed. I was shocked to hear it was a DUI accident, though it sounds like a common explanation. Many accidents are DUI involved. People always bitch and moan over those police checkpoints, thinking they are good drivers under the influence. This guy Brandon thought that too; look where he is at and where he is going to be staying awhile. Tuesday morning, I heard a call that a relative of one of the victims that was killed in that accident. Wanted a deputy to call them about their loved one who is now deceased. Their loved one will never be coming home again. They will never hold each other, be able to say "I love you" to one another. It's over because of drinking and driving. The passengers might have been drunk too, they probably were, and they made the wrong choice by getting in that car with their friend. He killed them though. It's not really considered murder, but he knowingly got behind the wheel of that car and killed his two friends, maybe a third. If nothing else, THINK before you get behind the wheel of a vehicle drunk or high. THINK. Because your whole life can change in an instant. For those of you who are passengers, don't get in a vehicle with someone who is drinking alcohol or under the influence of drugs or weed. The small chance is not worth the large price that you might have to pay getting in a vehicle with an impaired driver. Have a Great Happy Wednesday.

Later, Roger

Twoscoops: Brakes were not made to deal with long, steep grades. That is what the transmission and engine are for. DOWNSHIFT! Brakes slow the vehicle by turning forward momentum into heat, which is a decidedly limited equation. On the island of Maui, when one rents a car they have to sign a separate page that says they will not take the rental car up Haleakela Mountain/Volcano. Coming down from same, in low gears, we used the brakes only a couple of times on the tightest hairpin turns. The rental car in front of us had brake lights on for the entire descent. We began smelling their brakes 2/3 of the way down. There was much visible smoke by the time we got to the bottom of the grade. They undoubtedly had a huge rental car bill, because they never learned how cars function or how to drive. D is not the only option, or the correct option, on an automatic transmission equipped vehicle!

Me too went up there with a suicidal woman 27 years ago at the end of a dirt road with a shear drop I'm afraid of heights...Never went back I was in this sober fellowship and we took our never turn down a request too serious scary experiences.

Our brakes overheated on the steepest part of Gibraltar Road, w/hairpin turn, and we barely made it down. It was the middle of the day and we were out for a sightseeing adventure. It turned out to be more of an adventure than we had bargained for. This was several years ago, and we've not been back since! The fear hasn't worn off yet.
