georgia highways -- wtf?

WHO and WHEN will someone convey to the dept of public works or transportation or WHOEVER decides to add extra lanes to I-75 that simply erasing the lane markers, paving, and narrowing all the lanes to fit in an extra one or two lanes, will serve not to HELP the commute but simply to kill more people.

On the way home this evening, I decided that the semi-truck next to me might as well just climb INSIDE my van and we could ride together. Why not? We're two vehicles squeezed into a lane and a half.

It would suck to be a non-native Atlanta driver, say someone cruising down 75 from Kentucky, who has no idea that you must thread the needle at 85 mph in order to make it in one piece to the downtown connector.

Madness. Simply madness.
