Hey kids, ever done the Cali 1-2-3?
It’s a cool new craze sweeping the state. All you need is a car and anger.
Here’s how it goes:
First, you need to have a stretch of road so dangerous that it earns a nickname like, say, how California's Highway 138 was dubbed “Blood Alley” due to the amount of deaths there, and is forced closed by the government to improve safety conditions and widen the road.
Second, you need locals who are so short-sighted and hot-headed that, even knowing full well that the highway improvement will soon better their lives and commute, that they pelt construction workers with everything from burritos to trash, shoot them with BB guns, call in death threats, and even try to run them over.
And lastly, you need a Department of Transportation so frustrated with the aforementioned madness that they angrily shut down the whole dang highway, forcing commuters to detour around the work zone completely and local business to lose much business.
And that, my friends, is what we call the Cali 1-2-3! Wanna join us?
