  1. Praise God the occupant of the vehicle was not injured !!! Quite honestly, I am surprised that there have not been more accidents along Johnson Chute Road. I travel that road daily -to and from work, The speed limit is 35; in my opinion- that is way to fast for that road. It is narrow, there are no shoulders, just drop offs on the edge, very curvy and has many blind spots. I have stopped counting the number of times that I have been run off of the road , because of some imbecile, speed racer coming around the curve in the middle of the road,driving like the proverbial bat. I have been tailgated and passed and nearly hit. It is crazy !!! Then, when driving down Johnson Chute, one must constantly dodge the animals that the folks on Johnson Chute Road allow to roam with NO regard ! That said, it is a miracle that there have not been more serious accidents on that road !
