There are several curves on Sunset Boulevard referred to as "Dead Man's Curve".
Click on the Wide Field of View button to see them.
A drag racer going West on Sunset would have a long straightaway that hits a 90 degree right turn, which would be the most likely place to skid into oncoming traffic.
A racer savvy enough to survive this curve would likely slow down at the other curves.
