In the wake of the horrific accident on Interstate 70 that took the lives of four ladies from Kansas City, I see that the director of the Missouri Department of Transportation, Pete Rahn, has an "idea" for relieving the anxiety of driving next to the huge semi-trailer trucks between Kansas City and St. Louis (7/1, Local).
His idea is to build separate lanes for trucks and cars at a cost to taxpayers of $3.5 billion. He wants two lanes in each direction, for a $7 billion outlay.
Wait a minute. Didn't we used to have this already? Wasn't it called the railroad?
