Generally when the power goes out in our neighborhood, some high school student has smashed in to a particular power pole. Only one person has died, but he was a 60 something guy riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

The house at the end of the street I grew up on had this happen, after the 3rd time they put two huge boulders there, never had a problem after that.

There was a house near me in the town where I grew up except people kept missing the curve and hitting this giant tree. After a girl I went to high school with hit the tree with nearly catastrophic results (she lived but has never been right), they cut the tree down. The next person ran into their house. Now there are big boulders, warning strips and a guard rail to slow people down.

I'd probably firebomb that car so it wont do it any more.

Now we know why that tree was planted decades ago.

Anderson Spears told the Star that she was travelling too fast when driving over railroad tracks only 150 from the McCall home.

150 what?  Inches?  Because 150 feet would be an absurd distance over which to be unable to regain control of a vehicle in a residential zone.  And she hit the house with enough force to put a pretty big hole in it despite whatever corrective actions she attempted between the tracks and the house.  She must've been farking flying.

Several years ago, I was wondering why one street had not been widened, as it was an obvious connection to several major roads. Indeed, it seemed as if the connecting streets had been awkwardly designed to reduce traffic there. Then I noticed this huge tree lurking in the bushes at the edge of the road. Then I remembered reading years earlier about the largest and oldest tree in the county being someplace in this region, and the location being not mentioned so as to protect the tree. Aha.

She also went through a neighbor's fence, not whatever barriers the homeowners might have by the road.

I grew up in Indianapolis in a farm house on a rural road. It was way out in the country, not very well lit. Our house was the last one before the road ended in a T. At the end of the T was a huge tree. I can't count how many times I would hear distant squealing of breaks and the crunch of a car hitting the tree. More often than not the person who hit the tree would make their way to our house to call 911.

How about a ten-foot-deep retention pond? Apparently those are OK if only 15% of cars go into them.

Now, I'm not one to wish ill on people (ha, that's a lie), but if there's anyone who deserves to be in a car accident, it's the woman driving too fast over a railroad crossing, not wearing her seatbelt, and somehow unable to regain control within 150 feet (can you say phone?).  If only she'd been drunk it would have been bad driver BINGO.
 
2013-12-31 10:01:29 PM
The first time or two I can see and overlook. But after nearly a dozen times you should seriously consider that maybe the problem isn't them.

Came to mention bolders, since some nancy in City Hall probably wouldn't let them install spiked tank traps or something more deterring. Didn't Jeremy Clarkson have the same problem?

Any time i read about a woman in a mid sized SUV involved in a crash i always assume she was on the phone.

But yeah, how much does it cost to have a couple of decent sized boulders installed?

Corner lot here. During the summer months the roads that run by our house are in far too bad of shape to get up to any real speed without ripping the bottom out of even a full sized pickup.

During the winter, though, ice fills in all the low spots and people lose control flying around the corner all the time. Thankfully there is a 4 foot high berm of ice plowed up to keep them off the lawn.

Every spring I'm out there picking up chunks of broken plastic and headlight glass.

Bollards.  Make them out of cut-off phone poles, sunk in the side yard next to the house.  After 11 accidents, the Zoning Board shouldn't have a problem with it.

I wonder if their street has a home owners association.  HOA's can object to even the most rational modifications.  "A barrier?  How unsightly!  Not like the giant holes always being repaired in your house...those fit right in with the neighborhood."

Sounds about right. If I had 11 vehicles hitting my house I think I'd go full Joe's truck stop http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabama_State_Route_35

So publicize the tree's location and watch dozens of cars try to knock it down. Set up a webcam for real-time lolz.

That should get rid of a few idiots.

They should try moving the house.

I saw this on the news this morning.  The anchors joked about moving.  It seems to be a city/county civil engineering solution to reduce speed is needed.  Though without knowing all the details,  using eminent domain to replace the house with a sand trap might be the solution.

Tare down the house, sell the land to a neighbor, and have them build a large and deep swimming pool on the spot. After the first drowning, the yahoos should get the message to slow the fark down and pay attention.

4129 Forest Avenue in Des Moines.  Do a Google Street View of it.  42nd Street does a T intersection  with Forest in front of it.  The tree in front of it has been replaced a few times and they have staggered limestone blocks on the walkway  up to the house.  Every so often, some drunk Drake University frat boy  crashes in the yard.

This is not too far from where I live. I'm a bit tickled that someone else has heard of it.

I would think after 11 times there might be some bad karma attached to the property, and move.

If Google Maps is to believed, its 240 feet from the crest of the railroad crossing to the corner of the house. And the speed limit on that street is 30mph, How farking fast are those drivers going?

If it is some stupid zoning thing preventing boulders may I suggest a a few massive totem poles. Bury those suckers eight or nine feet in and have them a solid foot and a half in diameter and should stop most vehicles short of a semi.

If zoning or HOA gets on your as scream about freedom of religious expression and get the ACLU to back you up. All hail the FSM and his noodly lower insurance premiums.

She wasnt wearing a seat belt either and went through the windshield, if that helps put their decision making abilities into perspective.
