Caltrans has a definite "line of sight" issue(up the hill) from that intersection. Winter time is not bad, but with full summer foliage, the line of sight(up the hill) is restricted by trees and bushes."It's a very dangerous intersection!"
I'll second that! From the stop sign on Siegler, you must creep out almost onto the highway in order to see whether there's oncoming, and usually very fast downhill traffic.
Coming south on Highway 29 the visibility is better, but as "enough" says, people are often speeding. You never know whether someone waiting at the stop sign will decide to pull out right in front of you. When keeping to 60 mph coming down that hill I've been tailgated, lights and horns sounded at me.
It is sad when a moment of carelessness takes the life of someone so much loved by many in the community. Just a reminder of how transitory life is. Please everyone, drive carefully. Leave early and give yourself plenty of time if you must be punctual. Don't risk your life and the lives of others by being disorganized and then saying "Oops, I'm late--must hurry and shave off a few seconds!"
55 mph (or more) traffic is not visable and upon you very quickly in the summer season when you try to get onto Hwy 29 from Siegler Canyon Road.
