Massive power outage in Richmond

Just a heads up to everyone, there is a large power outage in Richmond. Francis to bridgeport, minoru to no. 7 road is the area affected and according to BC hydro, it will be down until 3am. Apparently it was caused by a motor vehicle accident. Link below. Drive carefully and get home safe everybody.

That's what I was wondering as well. In all of the previous power outages i've been in, it was only a small grid that was affected. Maybe just a few blocks. But this time the area spans so far. Must be pretty serious

used to be a tram there

The curve follows the old tram route, then they started building a road that followed the tram track, and did another road that resulted in the retard intersection you get today

I featured this intersection in one of my videos, and one of the suggestions I got was "Why don't they just install a round-a-bout at this intersection instead?"

Am I the only one who thinks that there will probably be MORE accidents if they installed a round-a-bout?

I mean, I'm pretty sure there's no round-a-bouts in Richmond for a reason..

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~
