Maybe time to enforce a speed limit on Fortune blvd(is there even one posted?)? I can never get over how fast people drive up there, you would think you were on 495.

I think the accident was related to weather not speed.

Could be. Two in two days though. I still can't over the way people fly up there though, even if these were due to snow and ice.
