Call the local DMV and Police Department and ask for a list of complaints and incidents about that curve. If necessary, you could file a FOIA request or let your insurance company do that. Give all the info to your insurance company and have them go after the state/city to cover the cost including your deductable. It would be helpful if you had a police report to document what happened and their investigation but it appears you didn't. You can probably still get satisfaction if there are sufficient complaints/incidents at that location. At the very least it might force the state/city to fix the problem so someone doesn't get killed.

Oh man, that's awful. I would be so upset.

I had a previous car repaired at an excellent body shop, and it ran and felt like new afterwards. It was incredible what they were able to do.

Hopefully your GPS didn't direct you into that wrong turn.
Thank you man I appreciate it. It is a horrible feeling. Every time I want to go eat, or go to my girlfriends house, etc. I hesitate and say SHIT

And no, my GPS was not on. I am familiar with the area but not thoroughly and I also know my way home from there. But maybe it is a smart idea to keep it on all the time from now on.

Yea, that is definitely something I am going to do. Thank god I am okay. At least the handling of my M helped me get through most the turn so I wasn't heading towards the poles. Somebody could die very easily and I will complain.

Certainly wasn't expecting to see an on ramp that I take weekly when I clicked on this thread... Good luck with your repairs.
