The following note was posted to the Arizona Republic's blog (i.e. PluggedIn) on 1 November 2005. They titled the posting: "Scottsdale's Demolition Derby."NASCAR is popular these days, but I don't know why anyone pays money to attend those races when the same action can be seen on the Loop 101. Good viewing times are any weekday morning between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. I can't speak about the southbound action, but northbound between Guadalupe Road in Tempe and Chaparral Road in Scottsdale is a thrill a second. Granted, the multi-car crashes are missing, but it's only a matter of time before those become a common occurrence. I am constantly awed at the high-speed driving skills of so many of us in the Valley of the Sun.
I advocate making the Loop 101 into a tollway.
