The Long and Straight Road
One of tree lined roads heading out of the town of Uzés in the south of France. One of the lovely features of driving on these types of roads, and there are many lined with Plain Trees, is the shade they give against a hot summer sun. In the days before air conditioning in cars they were the only protection.
There are people that want to cut down these beautiful tree lined byways because they cause too many road deaths. A normal human reaction of course, if something might have the potential to kill you, get rid of it or kill it before it gets you!!! It doesn't occur to these people to have drivers stick to the speed limit.
