Don’t keep it between the lines

There’s something inherently twisted about the Virginia Department of Transportation painting zigzag white lines in some areas to encourage drivers to slow down. I mean, this is the same state that wants to close rest areas to sleepy truckers and force them back onto the highways.

Don’t you think fatigue alone is enough to make regular white lines blur and twist? Heaven help the drowsy driver who happens upon a stretch of these beauties. They don’t make anti-rollover technology strong enough to keep a rig upright if the driver tries to stay within these lines.
