You would think. There is a reason we have a litigious society....and stupid people are the reason. Same reason government is bigger than it's britches.

The offramp I take to get to work has a parallel road 20' to it's right. I have seen 5 or 6 people in the last year turn right off the cross street into the oncoming traffic on the offramp instead of going the 20 extra feet to the street they needed. One guy panicked and drove off the road and down a 20' bank into blackberry bushes. LOL. GPS's on the cross street say "take the next right" and people do. Doesn't matter that a sign says "do not enter" or that it's head on into freeway traffic.

Just more proof that a large percentage of society are sheep.

What's interesting is that if she had taken about 30 seconds (like I just did) to look at the effing map, the vwery street she was on has a sidewalk and directly goes to the street she needed to get to, which also has a sidewalk.

Epic Facepalm.

Kayaking from The Bay to Japan is hardcore.

Its sad that super-lib LA will probably rule in her favor in their fucked wealth-redistribution horse-**** socialist agenda.

It happened in Utah, will be tried in Utah. We need a serious dose of tort reform. I am sad for who we have become. Once the greatest nation on the planet... quickly spiraling into Idiocracy. Pun intended.

This is so sad. Sad that there are some people out there that use their stupidity to gain what they want. You honestly have to wonder what was going through her mind as she hopped on the freeway. Was it, "Hmm, I might die, but then again there is a chance I could score some money too"? What has this place come to? Every time something like this happens, I think of this quote

That was natural selection trying to kill her. Hopefully it'll get her next time.

Doubt it, she's from LA and was in Park City which is a super touristy area. I'd call her dumb blond from LA spending daddy's money.
