The Road To Wendover

Rating: 4.5
A busy thoroughfare
For those who dare

Freak accidents abound
On that cursed stretch of ground

Tooele exit and beyond
One hundred miles of dread

Lined with crosses
For all to see

Reading your poem this morning and wondeng why this road is so dangerous. Looks like a poem for the TV program called Twilight Zoneri. Remember you would wake me up when we all were kids at home so you weren't alone watching it. Creepy program. Poem is well written filled with suspense and mystery.

If this road is so dangerous, there must be ways to make it safer. Possibly lower the speed limit and use headlights during the days and nights.

An EVIL so strong it reaches into the light and turns daytime into night. Recently,14 April 2015, midday, One dead,18 hospitalized in I-80 crashes. Many accident photos on-line, search accidents on I-80 Utah. Yesterday,4: 50pm, my wife and I drove the deadly stretch returning from our Mother's Day weekend in Wendover, NV.

Interesting poem! I prefer to travel Highway 50, the Loneliest Road in America, but have had a few scary experiences there, too.
