    This just seems ridiculous. I think a big part of it is we get a monopoly of one company and things just fall apart when they have difficulties. We have a generic antibiotic ointment that has sold forever under $10, now evidently there is only one company that makes it and now it is $50-crazy.

    There's always temporary or thermoplastic striping that will get by until permanent striping can go down. I don't see this being a big deal, its just that the DOT's and municipalities will have to change order it out to the contractor for a little more $$.

    Re: Line Paint Shortage Could Slow Road Construction

    I kinda noticed the last few weeks that there were some roads that could really use some new paint. I figured they just had not gotten around to it yet, but maybe there's more to it than that.

    Pretty sure that I can drive on a road without lines. In fact it is done all the time on roads called "gravel." This is just another excuse for completion delays and cost over-runs.
