I've been pulled over on Hwy 46 two times in the past year.  (Didn't get a teicket.)  It's heavilly patrolled!  I didn't want to push my chances.  I drive 7 miles of it five times a week - 14 round trip.  At least three times a week I'll see people getting tickets.  Saw two last Sunday alone; one on the way to church, the other after.
 
There have been some serious accidents on Hwy 46 in the past decade, including the death of an entire family in a Motorhome when they were hit head-on by a passing car - illegally so.  I rarely go above 61MPH on that road.
 
Chicken?  You bet!

Then I was right!  They do drove like crazies out there.  Well, it is California. . . .

They don't call Hwy 46 "Blood Alley" for nothing......the problem is it's a long stretch of 2 lane and people get impatient behind trucks and farm equipment.  They pass recklessly and cause terrible head on collisions.

The good news is they're are in the process of widening it.  The bad news is it'll take four years!

If that's not bad enough, in PA back in the 40's and 50's there were some 3 lane roads.  One lane each way and a "shared" lane in the middle which could be used for passing in either direction.  Talk about the ultimate game of chicken.  They stopped those after some horrific accidents.

3-lane highways were common accross the US - and were very dangerous!  There were sections of the original Hwy. 99 that was 3-lane. 
 
They still exist in places.  On Hwy 299 (I think that's the number) from Weaverville to Eureka in Nor. Cal has sections of 3-way, as does the Oregon Hwy. from Bend to I-5 through the Sisters.  These particular lanes are for passing on mountain grades.  I've used them, but never like them!

Clean that dash and you should be good for another 10 km/hr...
