Re: It pays to run a camera....
I definitely like the cartard line. I get to be her writing this partly because the State of Wisconsin put very good shoulders on the expressway around the Wisconsin Dells in time for our trip up to the 2011 BMW RA meet. I had taken Rt. 12 up most of the way, but hopped on the expressway to avoid the trip through the 1,000 motels, four water parks, 5 go-kart tracks and bumper to bumper traffic that the town is famous for at the end of June.
I was in the left lane with lots of cars passing slower traffic, and had just gotten the front tire past the front of a car, when the driver turned (according to my wife) to talk to the back seat and began drifting rapidly into my lane. Luckily I was left of center in the lane and had the shoulder. By they time my wife yelled, joining the folks watching the cartard from the back seat, I was on the shoulder and able to move back into the lane.
