There are plenty of warning signs and flashing lights indicating a 90-degree left-hand turn is coming up soon when exiting eastbound state Route 16 to Sprague Avenue.

I am not a big fan of governmental big brother things like red-light cameras, but in this case we are missing out on an entertainment opportunity. The WSDOT should install an idiot cam there. If you crash, and the camera gets your license plate number, you get a ticket for inattention.

If you really blow it, I believe that is called thinning the herd.
