Road Work Ahead: Summer NC Trip-- Part 1

Traveling as much as I do, I have seen lots and lots of road construction, but nothing compared to what I've encountered on this trip.

You might as well not have cruise control because once on, you have to brake to stop it or hit the button to loose it because you encounter "Road Work Ahead" signs.  It used to be just the sign, but now it is all kinds of warnings about fines doubling and jail time if you hit a worker.

And, every so often, work zones will have one of those speed detector signs showing how fast you're going, causing all sorts of red lights.

Of course, money-grubbing Illinois has the additional "Photo-Enforced" signs at every work zone.  Between them and all the photo-enforced lights, I'm thinking of changing the state name from "Land of Lincoln" to Photo-Enforced Lincoln State."
