On TV one of the Tyler Stations was highlighting future jobs for the future. One in particular caught my eye. Today 2200 truck drivers in the short future there will be a need for 9900 truck drivers. Will that mean there will be 7700 more trucks on the road. Alas progress as we see it.

Hopefully not. But I can't believe there are only 2200 trucks on the road currently.
(but.....is that nationwide or just locally in East Texas or in state of Texas?)

I lived outside of Dallas for many years. Traveled those roads often. Whenever I found myself going to Houston, I’d get anxiety just thinking about it. Houston was absolutely crazy!

I live on a business highway and I'm constantly picking up trash. Glass bottles, plastic bottles, paper, aluminium cans and even dirty diapers are some of the usual stuff.

People are animals. I'm glad I don't have road frontage. There's a guy a few miles from my place that does hay. Several years ago he had some irrigation pipes run over. He always has trash in his hay field. The other day I saw someone driving around in another farmer's field goofing off, which I know wasn't them b/c the guy that owns it lives on the other side of the state.
