And freeway designers. I've been in many parts of the country where there are tall screens separating the freeway lanes going in opposite directions....northbound traffic can't see what's happening on the southbound side. I'm guessing this is to prevent rubberneckers from slowing traffic while looking at a wreck on the opposite side of the freeway. Makes sense, right?
But not in Dallas. Ooooh no! Here we build 12-lane-wide brand new freeways that have a 4' tall divider between lanes going in the opposite direction. So every time there is a wreck going one way, cars going the opposite direction slow to 3 mph in order to see all the carnage. Then as soon as you pass the wreck it's back to 80 mph. WTF?
Then all the "traffic engineers" complain traffic is too slow and initiate another 10-year, gazillion-dollar project to install more lanes. (Job security?) Bullshit. Just include a tall divider down the middle and traffic will zip right along.
Come on all you egghead engineers. This ain't rocket surgery!
