Maybe because all of these offramps (sunset, 8th, etc) are UNFINISHED and DARK at night. Without turning on my high beams I can barely tell if I'm even on the road/offramp/etc.

Pretty curious how these off ramps were unfinished until this accident and magically got finished days after this. To hide the proof that they were impossible to see on at night?
