Anyone from SF/SJ BA? I’m considering purchasing a house about halfway between Santa Cruz and San Jose on Rt 17. I see a lot of stories on how dangerous the road is. Anyone have experience commuting?

I’ve driven it a number of times. It’s not bad, but definitely not as safe as a straight freeway. Rt 17 has a combination of fast drivers, many cars, and windy sections. Just don’t be in a rush on that road. On the bright side, it’s a pretty fun drive if you’re into cars and speed (which probably contributes to the hazards).

Pretty much what A1 said. Overall though such a beautiful area. Santa Cruz mountains have some great hikes and trails, close to Monterrey, Big Sur, ocean, redwoods
