We stood at the corner for a good twenty minutes to gauge driver reaction to the hell hole. On the whole, most motorists swerved so as to avoid catastrophe, yet a surprising number hit the ditch at well over 30 mph. This video illustrates a handful of the unfortunate cases. At least it’ll keep the mechanics busy.
