according to this, there have been 16 accidents in the Ventura area since 9 AM. (you have to select Ventura in the pulldown). it refreshes every sixty seconds, with new incidents of idiocy.
under ‘traffic hazards’, we have a bridge closure (incident 0208) — the santa clara river bridge, which is highway 101 crossing the river. because not only can’t we drive in the rain, we also don’t build roads that can handle it. 1.97 inches of rain since midnight and we’re in road closure/bridge collapse mode. sheesh.
