On this Roadscapes Wednesday post, on a Thursday, I am talking about why every state including Alabama, needs to have a so called “Slow-Poke Law.” As of now, most states in America has a law that prohibits drivers from going too slow in the left lane, or the passing lane. Here in Alabama, many drivers, including me, have seen their fair share of drivers going way too slow in the left lane. And this means drivers have to get into the right lane to go around the slow car in the left lane, it’s not right!
So below, I am embedding this educational video from Safer Roads For Cumbria showing you the details and the reasons why hogging the left lane is not only not thoughtful, but also annoying and dangerous. If you like to hog the left lane, even if you are driving the speed limit, do yourself a favor, and get over! Other drivers thank you for it.
On this Roadscapes Wednesday, I am featuring the 58th, 59th, and 60th Geek Alabama road drawings! The three road drawings feature a rural freeway intersection, a rural freeway interchange, and a huge traffic light intersection! Enjoy my work!
On this Roadscapes Wednesday, I am showing off five new road drawings! These road drawings vary from a 2-lane road becoming one way streets, traffic light intersection with one way streets, one interesting intersection, a downtown square with HAWK signals, and a road drawing thanking the supporters of Geek Alabama and my 28th birthday, enjoy!
If you have noticed, we are taking it slowly this week since it’s the week of the 4th of July. So for this Roadscapes, I am featuring a video where I bash ALDOT once again. Many cyclists do not like the gravel placed on AL-281 or the Talladega Scenic Drive. Every year during the Cheaha Challenge, cyclists have a hard time navigating then gravel, and on some parts of the road, most of the gravel has come off! You expect the tar and gravel treatment on some less traveled county road, but not on a state highway! Here are some pictures from me.
So, I found this video where the person took the classic movie clip where Hitler yells at everyone, and he turns it into another bashing from this state’s DOT. The video is a compliant about the tar and gravel treatment on AL-281. For a state that has no social media presence or YouTube channel, by they way, every state’s DOT around Alabama has social media accounts and a YouTube channel, this video should serve a purpose for some major changes inside ALDOT, I have proposed changes, but nothing has happened. So from the YouTube channel stan0614, enjoy the video!
One of my goals is to share what I think how our roads should be constructed and maintained in Alabama, I mean, I draw roads as a hobby! So, in my latest SlideShare presentation called Redo AL’s Roads (Redo Alabama Roads), you will learn about what ALDOT and the lawmakers should do so Alabama can have a safe and excellent road/infrastructure system! Enjoy the presentation!
