Thanks @cartoonz for attempting to put words in my mouth!
I can only speak for the past 6 years I've been "traversing" the 154, but I have never seen a runaway truck ramp there, nor have I seen signs for one. I've only lived in SB for 36 years, so what would I know? Maybe there was once a runaway truck ramp 10 years ago, but it doesn't really matter because it's not there now. Had there been a ramp, the driver may have still avoided it and killed that poor family... we just don't know.
I think many of us are simply trying to illustrate that there are too many big trucks coming down the 154 unnecessarily -- as a shortcut to the 101 -- and increasing the potential for serious accidents, as certain safety measures aren't in place.

@805RunningCrew... I drive the 154 EVERY DAY. There is no runaway truck ramp in that area, or else there would be a sign, or series of signs posted.
If a loaded truck with faulty breaks tried to turn off the road before the Cathedral Oaks offramp, it would most certainly jackknife. I'm not trying to lay blame on any party, I'm merely trying to prove that there is no runaway truck ramp at this location.
As far as quoting wikipedia, I see nothing wrong with explaining things simply, as though I'm talking to a 5 year old!

If that area were a proper runaway truck ramp, it should:1. Have a sign stating so.2. Be long and filled with deep gravel or sand.3. Be designed to accommodate large trucks.
