  1. The pole looks ok…the car, not so much.

  2. How is a person supposed to drive safely if these telephone poles jump out in front of them unexpectedly

  3. BAN ALL TELEPHOINE POLES !!!

    …If it Can Save JUST ONE BMW it will be worth it.

  4. Typical outcome from a BMW driver!

  5. I’m surprised more accidents don’t occur in that section of Rt. 17. It’s a speed zone.
