Not that there should be either but it really illustrates the fickle stupidity of public opinion and how much clout that stupidity has over government action.

This isn't a Federal takeover of the roadways. The roadways have always belonged to the Federal Government.
This is just a common sense law, just like "don't drink and drive".
