This stretch of freeway is a death trap. There is an elevation changes as you climb Kellogg Hill westbound; once you hit the "summit", The elevation almost instantly drops down again, all while making a slight wind to the right. Cars who have passed over the top of the hill can barely be seen from behind. Only the top of their car is visible, which also means that you can't see their break-lights as you are ascending. If a car is hitting the brakes, you can't see until you are only a few hundred feet away, which when traveling at 70 mph, is almost instantaneous. I drive fast, and I have to slow down every day on my way to work because I have had a scare and even I need to admit there needs to be reduced speed corridor until you are over the hill...

Agreed. People are driving way too fast in both directions on this hill. Can't stand the m_rons that weave around. Why rush to your dead-end job? Chill out people.

70 mph would be driving at a snail's pace. People on this stretch of the highway are speeding at 85 to 90 mph. Don’t exactly know where the accident happened, but there are merge lanes to 57 North, Cal Poly and Southbound 57 to the 10 West. Much of all this is happening uphill. The downhill portion is not in San Dimas.

That's what a hill is all about! You sound very intelligent.
