One of the roads, I mentioned was investigated, well a series of houses and areas along the road were. But it isn't a traditional "ghost road" because the spirits there haunt the road and houses equally. (No I do not have access to any of the evidence they collected)
The other road I mentioned would be very hard to investigate. A group of us have tried finding correlation in the times, areas, etc where the phantom car is seen but there doesn't appear to be any pattern. We have started attempting to narrow down people killed on the road who were in the type of vehicle that the phantom car is.
Setting stories straight would be great! But evidence is the main factor of course...
Just like in the stories of some of the "haunted" locations I have been to. OMG, you wouldn't believe what I actually hear and see! Even the wrong name of who is the spirit in question! Stupid stories and the TV shows carry on with them. I love when they are calling out the names of the spirit and it's wrong!!!
Anyway, stories and tales of things just never seem to get backed up with real evidence, be it photos, evp, video, history and even a read of the area. All of these things would make for "real" stories if they were true. Now if the tourist attraction part would stop, maybe some of this could really get done.
(sorry for the ramble)
I hate how the paranormal has became a 'tourist trap'. I love visiting Gettysburg, but you can't enjoy the city in the evening for all of the "ghost tours" I love the Sach's bridge area, every time we are in Gettysburg we visit Sach's bridge. Last summer we were there at dusk and there was so many wannabe ghost hunters there that they were falling all over each other. I was sitting quietly on the bridge taking pictures of the water at dusk and one ghost hunter started freaking out thinking I was a ghost. Another was convinced they were smelling ghostly smoke on the bridge, completely ignoring all of the people smoking at the enterence of the bridge!
As for people getting names and facts wrong, sometimes real events, or actual hauntings get changed over time. At a local university in the 70's a girl killed herself. She jumped from the roof of the building and landed on the awning on the 1st floor. She haunts this building. I have seen her and experienced this haunting several time over the years. If you ask any student on campus they will tell you all about this, and they will tell you her name is Penelope. Her name in't Penelope, her name according the news clippings about her death is Dottie.
