It's a treacherous piece of road. Probably should have been 45 mph long ago through that entire stretch. Maybe it is already, come to think of it. Whatever, I've always driven the Big Hill Cut conservatively.

You know, that's definitely a possibility, but even before texting people died from distracted driving. I guy I went to high school with died in a head-on accident because he was messing with his tape deck and looked down to get a cassette. Condolences to the family.
