I believe an elderly lady was also stopped after she made an error and entered the wrong way but doesn't that show that either she is no longer capable to drive or the way the access ways are right now due to construction are not clear enough and there are absolutely strange ways that the have routed traffic and without clear notice the next time you drive there it is completely different and not very clear.

Another thing is the danger of people driving in the middle lane just to pass as many cars to enter at the last minute into the exit lane to pass as many cars and creating so many dangerous situations for other traffic that doesn't need to exit.

It seems this is far more common here than elsewhere.....

mostly drunk stoners after bars closed, sometimes a little old lady before sunrise.

Maybe it's a matter of highway design at least to some degree?

Root cause analysis is what we used to do in healthcare when we had a bad outcome (ie sentinel even/patient death/unexpected catastrophic outcome). I'm sure they're doing it here. Alcohol seem to be a common denominator.
