Highway blues

Best business model for creating a tourist trap: Instead of connecting people directly from the interstate to the highway on way to a major destination...






... route people, instead, through the business district of small, cute, kitschy Western outpost before connecting to said highway.

Such is the case with I-40, the Grand Canyon, Williams, Arizona and its 15 mph business district speed limit.


To hell with you, Williams - you ain't getting any of our scratch. Not now, not ever.
