(LiveLeak)   Strange, building a ramp all the way across a highway with just two little orange flags for warning seems perfectly safe. In other news, cue Dukes of Hazzard theme music   ( divider line

NewportBarGuy: Bang up job with the camera, dillhole.

She was trying to use that phone to dial 911, dillhole. Count yourself lucky someone was filming so you could witness the awesomeness.

TyrantII: styckx: No one built a ramp.

The road buckled from the heat, instead of closing it they just put up some shiatty signs.

Story about it: Link

That's going to be a huge lawsuit. F'in morons.

Probably not. In most cases, the governing authority limits its own liability regarding road problems, and depending how the law reads, those flags might be sufficient notice. (Where I live, the legal equivalent works something like: If you pass this sign, you accept this fact: Slow the fark down and be careful, 'cause we ain't paying if you break something on this stretch. If you don't like this, don't pass this sign.) Put other way, the Duke Boys were likely given adequate notice, and disregarded it. They're probably entitled to nothing but scorn and derision.

I know a lot of leadfoots consider it their personal right to have a cash-starved authority provide a glass-flat autobahn for their sole enjoyment, and keep it in perfect condition, and have their own mother sent to notify them of any imperfections that might harsh their mellow before it can be perfectly regraded again, but it turns out that's not actually how it works. Apparently, we're all supposed to share in the cost and responsibility, it seems. Damned imperfect world! It also turns out that even in the U.S., you really can't just sue anyone anytime you want, and you're not actually entitled to joy and happiness on the public dime. Who knew?
