Interstate Highway 10…A Very Dangerous Road

Jim says:

Yesterday I took my most-hated drive in the United States…On Interstate Highway 10 in Southern California. Sometimes there are just no other roads available…that was the case yesterday. To get from San Bernardino to Thousand Trails in Palm Desert…I-10 is the only way. To sum it up in one sentence….too many vehicles and too many speeding drivers.

Yesterday I drove about 75 miles on Interstate Highway 10 east-bound. At 8-9 AM the sun is directly in your eyes making it most difficult to see anything! I didn’t try to take photo as it was all I could do to stay in my lane.

Lots of 18 Wheelers…

As you approach Palm Springs, you get to see a wind generator farm with about 1,000 units…

I believe over the 15 years I’ve been coming to this area, I’ve seen more vehicle crashes on this local roadway than any other in the United States.

Fortunately I only have to drive this stretch once a year and arrived Thousand Trails RV Resort safely…
