We in the US have active 11 aircraft carrier strike groups. No other country has more than 3. That costs a fair amount, and our infrastructure shows it.

And you may have taken a wrong term if you need to filter past an aircraft carrier.
Enforcement officers might be kinda rough there.

Meh. I'm happy to bang the politics drum when it's warranted.
In this case it strikes me much more as "this is super expensive and we blew our allowance on it so we can't have smooth roads". end.

There's been a lot of freeway (and street) shooting between cars lately, some of it probably gang wars and some straight road rage. And some because anybody who wants to can get their hands on a gun and start shooting. I feel pretty exposed on my scooter, but then I feel that way about all the fools who really don't seem to ever look anywhere but in front of them when they drive. So, the lesson is always the same, pay attention, look around a lot, pay attention, be ready for anything you can imagine, pay attention and keep moving.
If ever I feel anxiety about getting shot at in Watts, it's worth reminding myself that I'm the fool who pasted a giant target on the cowl.

This has gone way off-track from lane-splitting, and ventured into banned topics.
