Another Hair Salon Crash

Yesterday, yet another hair salon was the victim of a collision with a vehicle, this time Salon 08 in West Seattle.

First question asked by media after the crash:  “Was she wearing a helmet?”


Driver’s first statement:  “I don’t know what happened. That salon just came out of nowhere!”

Talk radio chat:  “Those salons should not be allowed on the road.”

Citizen comments:  “Getting your hair done is too dangerous. I don’t know why people think they should do that.”

Advocacy groups: “We demand protected hair salons lanes”
