I live in Cornville and work in Cottonwood. Five days a week I drive up and down the Cornville switchbacks twice daily. I fear for my life! At least once a week I see someone speeding, weaving, texting, phoning and crossing the yellow line. I've seen vehicles go off the road down into the ditch or smack the rock wall or into each other. The cute little signs on Cornville Road do not make the point! Slow Down! Pay Attention! There are bicyclists, pedestrians and animals on this road. The sun can blind you at certain times of the day.
What's the answer? One - It's up to every single driver to be alert. Slow Down and Pay Attention! Two - A giant sign at each end of the switchbacks. Switchbacks! Slow down! Pay attention or you may die! Or worse, end up in the hospital.
