the Interstate program, Federal Highway Act, was signed in development by President Eisenhower. We now have 42,794miles, according to the Weather Channel, of interstate and over Americans travel over seven billion miles a year on them. Amazingly enough New York state comes in with the highest number of routes coming in at 29.

This could be in Random or here under Current Events so if you want move it go ahead.

Ironically, my mother was born the exact same day. I make the joke that when she was born, Eisenhower said, "Ooops, Patricia Pugh was just born, we better finally get crackin' on that Interstate thing, 'cuz God knows she's gonna use it a LOT."

The interstates are of course nice to get you to point A to point B quickly. But, I think it should a requirement for all Americans to take at least a 400 mile road trip on state or US routes. People miss so much solely traveling along I-states.

How many actually go to jail? Not many out here. And as to your last statement, it points to our failure as a society to help get ingrained into our children what makes a contributing memebr of society and whay it is good for them.
