How Drivers Are Ending Up on One of America’s Most Dangerous Streets
Navigational apps are creating a wild ride for drivers in Los Angeles that seem to come out of nowhere and are causing disastrous results. Apps like Waze are directing motorists onto Baxter Street, which is one of the steepest roads in America. The route is meant to help people avoid traffic, but with a 32 percent grade incline, drivers are losing control of their cars, landing upside down, and crashing onto front lawns and curbs. Truck and limo drivers are getting wedged on the street's crest.
