How many flashing lights and 15 mph signs does it take to keep the “distracted, incompetent, intoxicated, impulsive, inexperienced” drivers from crashing into the Sprague Avenue off-ramp barriers?

Here’s a plan: Install a video cam at that intersection and revoke the driver’s license of each driver who hits the barrier. Don’t waste any more money trying to stupid-proof this road. Revoke their licenses and impound their vehicles.
