  1. Seriously how fast does a car need to be going to take out a pole like that? So many 1 car accidents. We will not know if this was medical related but feels like a speed and /or texting while driving issue to me. Speeding is out of control on N Monroe. With fewer cars on the road it like like open season for landscaping turks to go 45mph. How about some enforcement?

  2. my suggestion is you slow down and get off your phone !

  3. Even at 25, you would take out a utility pole if you struck it without any breaking. My guess here is total distraction caused by cell phone use.
