A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Who Really Controls the Speed Limits on Superhighways?

We can guess that posted speed limits; posted cameras and the State Highway Patrol in each state dictate how fast we all should be going on the highways and turnpikes, right? But think again, it's really the 18-wheelers rollin' down the highways that can control the traffic better than all of the above. Think: "breaker breaker 19" or "convoy" for the ultimate "control." It seems to me when there are a lot of truckers on the roads, with a few "crazies" driving too fast and weaving in and out, they put the kibosh to all those road shenanigans quickly.  At times it's warranted, but the drivers who follow the rules of the road pay for those crazy few.

Maybe it's for the best, as they probably keep us safer than if they did not do a thing to stop it.
