23 Freeway Construction Ventura County

Has anyone else noticed that there are NO signs warning of construction, concrete mixers or other trucks randomly pulling out onto the 23 freeway at the construction site?

In driving that area each morning it seems that there has been an incredible increase in traffic accidents. Some of them have looked pretty bad, requiring the assistance of emergency medical services.

Interestingly, there are no flagmen or signs warning motorists of sudden semi trucks blocking the freeway. This seems quite unbelievable. In making numerous phone calls to the California Highway Patrol and Cal Trans, it seems that nothing is planned for safety. All public agencies called report that either there is no increase in accidents OR that the state takes every step to ensure public safety. Yeah, right.

This writer was almost killed recently when a piggy-back semi concrete mixer pulled across the freeway suddenly and without warning.

All motorists are encouraged to call Cal Trans, CHP, and local government offices to demand increased safety measures. Since this is a major route for recent high school graduates traveling to Moorpark College, it is quite likely the next person to be involved in a fatal accident could be a young member of one of our families. Discussing this after something tragic happens does nothing. The CHP office is in Moorpark and the watch commander is Sergeant Moriarty. Sargeant Moriarty indicated that motorists should be aware of the situation even without any signs. This appears to be an unacceptable response. Young drivers make mistakes, and in this section of the freeway currently, mistakes could be fatal. Please let your local officials hear from you.
