Bowen Ranch Rd. needs posted speed limits and a warning of this dangerous curve.

My '75 Powerwagon was severely damaged several years back on this curve after being hit by two trucks in succession racing and losing control on this curve, ending up on the wrong side of the road. Both of the compact trucks were totalled. Their roadrace followed a drinking session which followed a paintball game. The investigating Highway Patrol showed a high level of interest in their drunken condition.

Given the high level of accidents, a local resident assumed the task of maintaining cautionary markers on Deadman's Curve. Hower, the grader crew confiscates them if they are in place when they pass through. Since the grader crew was due, the markers were not in place. The road was graded the next day (Monday). The marker service is being discontinued as the volunteer who formerly serviced this curve is moving into town.

I am not sure if there has been a recorded fatality to earn the name Deadman's curve. If not, there is a high potential that someone will provide that qualification, given the number of serious accidents at that location.

Repeat: Bowen Ranch Rd. needs posted speed limits and a warning of this dangerous curve.
