Take the example in this picture – the slots were cut at precise intervals and to the exact same depth. Each block of cuts was made equidistant from its neighbor. FOR MILES AND MILES!
Identical scars – identical globs of new concrete to pour inside identical holes.
An absolute waste of money. It accomplishes nothing. (Except ding up cars so garages and body shops have more repairs.)
Exactly 30 years ago – almost to the day – I was driving down a similar highway in a different state. Same pattern same road congestion. That time, it was on an Interstate, so the crew had flag people out to slow us down. Many of the flag bearers were ladies.
At that time, I came up with a calming theory. All these workers may be paid with tax dollars, BUT, they are getting PAID. Money for shoes, food, shelter, clothing, and transportation. Who am I to deny these crews there living!
Still, these new holes bug the crap out of me.
