This is so sad, it seems as if people must explore and go on to the snow riddled roads. I would think it would be better for the Forest Service to close all dangerous road til they are no longer a threat to those who must go to the extreme and have to see what is on the other side.... Safety first and always. I know we should all take more responsiblity to stay out of those places and our family does, but there are those who feel the need to go where they shouldn't this time of the year. So lets all lean toward keeping people safe from themselves by asking for the Forest Service to close all roads in the mountains if it will save lives! I know this would be an expensive task to do, but maybe we could round up some people who would like to give of themselves to help close those roads without costing an arm and a leg to the Forest Service, maybe some of our criminals who are in jail doing not much, could be of help, I don't have the answers wish I did, because loosing lives in the snow is sad and unnecessary
