Reopened already.

It is absolutely ridiculous that there was this much traffic over an accident that caused NO injuries or damage. Zero. Nada. I passed by. The two who'd touched bumpers were happily chatting while they blocked an entire lane of traffic needlessly. It is a total waste of taxpayer dollars to require a police officer to come out for a fender bender. They could have easily exchanged information and we could have all avoided that mess. But how else could the insurance industry find more ways to gauge us?

Julie - you are misinformed. From the HMB Review: "Authorities have reopened Highway 92 to traffic at about 3:20 p.m. after a vehicle that drove off the hillside east of Skyline Boulevard. CHP officials say a female driver may have been trying to commit suicide by steering her car off the road and down the embankment. Firefighters and medical personnel are evaluating her. " The fender bender was related to the traffic buildup after the fact.

Well, by the time I got there, there were two completely undamaged cars blocking traffic with the drivers happily chatting with each other. There's no reason those two cars couldn't have pulled over and exchanged information. They caused a major snarl up that cleared shortly after passing them. I'm not misinformed. I was there.

Not to mention, by that point, traffic was not closed going in the other direction.

Well, sounds like you had a very traumatic traffic experience on Highway 92. Hope you were not too inconvenienced.
