Issues with 131

Every time I travel to downtown Grand Rapids, 131 North or South Bound has an accident somewhere, usually on the S Curve.

I absolutely dread driving on US 131. I am scared that I am going to get into an accident because I feel that the design of the highway is poor. The S Curve is terrifying and people whip through there WAY TOO FAST.

Hi Caitlin, thanks for the post, I am one of the facilitators for the challenge. It's interesting that you've observed recurring crashes in that area, I wonder if the collisions that happen on the S curve occur in the same way? I'm also curious if this concern for safety on the highway has changed your travel patterns - do you go a different way when you can?
