Second time in less than 10 days. A car traveling the wrong way on the highway after 2:00 in the morning causes a head on collision. Both collisions resulted in multiple fatalities the first involved a 40 year old Uber driver who was not at fault. The accident today 2/9/19 involved a Prius with two passengers who died and the diver is in critical condition. As of now no other info concerning the accident. Made me think about the risk driving and that in traffic, late hours weekends we are paid the same about $3 an hour after expenses.

Couldn't find out whether he was a rideshare driver or not besides the fact that he had two passengers.

He's going to have a big headache when he wakes up at the hospital.

Yep, the drivers of those three cars drive like maniacs. The problem is that on the peninsula they just will not write any tickets. The only tickets people get are in Millbrae where the red light camera is flashing like a red carpet all day and night.

I have never even seen a CHP anywhere north of SFO on 101 except when there's an accident and where the speed limit drops down to 50 nobody is going less than 70. It's crazy.

There is always constant risk while driving, especially around the SF Bay Area, but the hours you drive can elevate or reduce your risk factors somewhat.

That's why most insurance rates are based on how many miles you drive overall and go up with additional miles on the road.

We could all avoid or reduce some risks and stay home, but being in California, other horrible risks are always possible, from fires, earthquakes, floods, and mudslides, just to mention a few big ones.
