    Many of the photos in my blog, are accidents ready to happy. Yes, putting city of Cerritos and our council on notice, accidents are ripe for Cerritos, as our city trees and landscape are not compatible for our streets. Many sheriffs have complained, as our PW does nothing and our CCC lavishly enjoys trips abroad, instead of investing in our most valuable commodity, OUR URBAN LANDSCAPE!

    Tired of tragedies accidents stemming from Malibu and Newport. Both cities are home to very expensive race cars. Imagine most of these students were from top performing educational institutions. Brains are not everything, as poss. these kids were street dumb dead. Remember one of my home towns, Palos Verdes, many pre med students were killed in hi speed car accidents too. Yesteryears Heartland of American performers, are no different then today, except today’s youth have very expensive cars to prove their branding, along with fusion of drugs. My time, we had slow street rods, pregnancies and keg of booz.

    Scratch and sniff the photo, there is more underlining issues:

    • Could be wrong, but don’t the current DMV Laws, prohibit under age siblings from being in the same car?
    • Also wonder, if the road design & or blinding tree trunk, was not a major player in aiding to this accident.
    • Know one thing, most parents who had common sense, would not allow their kids to drive expensive Infiniti car, w/ jamming of kids in a small car.
    • Also wonder, most of the names are global, wonder if the driver was legally driving, as immigration laws prohibit some global from obtaining CDL, such as the immigrant Latinos who attend Artesia HS?


    Bottom line, hope donors lists were able to receive the body parts for transplants. Hello UCI Med Center and Hoag!!!!!!

    I wonder if the media will ever report the names of the parents and where they live and the registered owner of the car driven by the no license driver? What are they hiding?
