Going too fast on Monkey Hill

I would like to let someone know that every morning and every night there is a drag race. People in the slow lane passing people in the fast lane and I am going approximately 60 and they sail pass me like I am doing 40 mph. That is in the morning and in the afternoon around 5 p.m., I am coming down by Monkey Hill Road and Dugualla Bay and the lane changes to slow but people have passed me in the slow lane. I have encountered Navy personnel and they exceed well over 70 mph. Plus! They are also notorious for tailgating and many teenagers do as well.

I feel the State Patrol needs to monitor this road a lot more than what they are doing. I just can’t believe how many people actually drive this way! Be very careful out there because you never know — it may be you next time! Please call me! 360-929-6184.
