BLIND CURVE #12
This is the story of NEVER ACCEPTING NO when lives are at stake: Blind Curve#12 on South Gate Road, Mount Diablo State Park. Over the years, visitors who rode a bicycle were being seriously injured and California State Parks was doing NOTHING to understand why or do anything to implement safety improvements at this location. In addition, numerous Near-Miss Bike vs Vehicle Incidents were occurring weekly and California State Parks continued to ignore the evidence or do anything to prevent these Near-Death incidents(see 2018 video survey below). According to California State documents, there has been five Bike vs Vehicle Collisions since 2002 at this dangerous 180-degree Blind Curve. In 2021, a Bike Turnout was finally installed at this location (see drone video below).
