Traffic was backed up all night through the Santa Cruz Mountains past my home along Highway 17. Even if you don’t know the codes it’s not too hard to figure out from the context. “TC” is “Traffic Collision”; “1125″ is traffic hazard (i.e. crashed vehicles are still in the roadway); “1141″ is ambulance requested; “1144″ is fatality.
