Who’s idea was it to take the most heavily trafficked and congested stretch of highway and put points along the way where the whole mob has to come to a halt to take tickets and pay tolls? Seriously, are people just trying to be cruel?
Speaking of tolls, I have no idea where that money’s going. Certainly, it’s not going to the roads, because that is the crappiest stretch of highway I’ve ever driven on.
If windshield wipers are going for 8 hours straight, will they wear out?
If you can’t see the lanes, is it okay just to make up your own?
According to NPR even, the only things worth talking about were Jeremiah Wright, some vet who had a funeral in a baseball stadium, and the fact that Mars bought Wrigley’s.
Shouldn’t there be a separate road for trucks? I mean, really, the whole going 45 and then going 70 thing just doesn’t do much for the traffic flow, not to mention the tailgating and the drifting out of lanes.
I think the trip was still faster than if I went by plane.
Train travel is the only civilized mode left, except that it’s still too slow and doesn’t go to enough destinations to make it truly viable. Sigh.
