Being a recent SoCal transplant, I’m adjusting to spending about an hour a day on the freeway. Driving home today I was struck by how amazing freeways, particularly Southern California freeways are.

If you’d told someone a hundred years ago that you could safely drive 70 to 80 (or 90) miles an hour on roads that there’s probably a car within fifteen feet of you at all times, they would’ve said it was impossible. And whats even more amazing is that we can do all that while talking on phones, playing with the stereo and putting on makeup. Not that I put on makeup.
