Stripeless society

What's with all the fuss over a stripe-less Yakima Valley Highway? Stripes are so rigid and imposing.

Currently, I can drive how ever I see fit; I can hug the left or right side of the lane, or just leisurely weave my way down the middle and stop to make a left turn wherever I like. I can determine the proper way to drive to fit my preferences, and other people can drive the way that works for them.

We don't need 'the man' to cram an outdated set of vehicular beliefs down our throats by painting stripes on the road! The way I drive in the privacy of my own vehicle is nobody's business but mine.

The City is actually really with it on this issue. Our post-modern, secular society has latched on to a relative moral system in which each person determines what's right for himself, rather than collectively following a set of rules like the Bible. Why shouldn't our roads match our society?

The city should continue this open minded policy and take a sandblaster to the rest of the lines and stripes in town. Nobody pays attention to them anyway.

Thank you, City of Sunnyside, for showing us just how successful society can be without an absolute sense of right and wrong!
