By the Side
of the Road
During recent trips to St. Louis and Atlanta, I found myself ruminating about the changes that have taken place in the field of vehicular conveyance in the past 60 years or so.
I usually try to catch a few winks on these long forays, but the corrugated strip running along the sides of today’s four lane highways provides an instant warning of any ill-advised trajectory.
A half century ago, people behind the wheel would fall asleep and, if they were lucky, wake up in the hospital.
