    While the bottom line for this incident is driver error and while there is plenty of warning for all drivers to safely negotiate the curve, the number of accidents suggest a redesign is in order to increase safety. With the limited access to two major freeways in an ever increasingly busy area there is absolutely a need to redesign and make adequate the whole I-15/I-84 interchange.

    Coming south to north on I-15, there is no I-15 interstate-to-interstate access to I-84. Coming from I-84 westbound to I-15 southbound there is no interstate-to-interstate access to I-15. The whole interchange is inadequate.

    This has happened to many times at the same location. There are signs that warn truck drivers to slow down. Unexcusable. The driver need to be held responsible and face severe consequences. We don't need a road redesign.

    Very unfortunate for all involved.

    One style note: the term is "cattle", not "cows" as bovines include cows, bulls and steers. My grandfather taught us that, "all cows are cattle but not all cattle are cows."
