  • JRA when I passed the driver of this old RV backing slowwwwly (slower than walking speed) from where Hwy 9 is closed 3 miles north of Santa Cruz.  It's not like he had three miles of huge, bright orange "ROAD CLOSED AHEAD USE DETOUR" to warn him of this.  He had to drive in reverse for something like a half mile to find a turnaround, and he didn't seem skilled at driving large vehicles in reverse.
