Bikers Sue Over PCH Accident

New, 2 comments

Gack, a perfect storm of bad roads and furloughs. Four bicyclists who were severely injured while riding on the PCH in August 2009 have sued Caltrans, saying the state agency didn't properly maintain an under-construction work site on the highway. The riders suddenly faced "loose gravel, rocks, sudden irregularities in elevation" and more, and while Caltrans was notified of the dangers, they "did not begin to remedy the situation until Monday, explaining that they were closed on Friday due to the state-mandated furlough," according to the release.
