I've never been to the Dragon, but I here the police presence is huge there now, don't speed.

It's a fun road to drive if you use common sense. What ever you do, <span style="font-weight: bold">watch out for trucks!</span> These are only a few photos of what can happen. Don't go flying around a bend! You never know what's waiting for you! Some people joke about it, but it's one dangerous road, not only for the trucks, but a lot of people cut the corners short, just asking for a disaster.

A big U-haul rental truck almost hit me head on in the Miata at the dragon. He was way over on my side and I was on the outside of the curve. Fortunately the Miata is small and there was a little shoulder at that point. The wife was silent for a while after that!!!
