One of those new safety first break-away poles. Luckily for the driver.

Was the driver chatting on his or her cell phone when this happened? What are the chances of that being an AT&T cell phone? What goes around comes around.

Glad there were no pedestrians walking there when this happened.

See what happens when you veer off to the right.

...and that's a surprise? Most veer that way, in Atherton. Frankly, I prefer the middle, on Valparaiso.
