(she felt it wasn't safe to stand in the road on a highway with a 65-mph speed limit).

He he.  I remember one time, my sister and her friends and I were driving from Denver back to northwestern Kansas in the evening after dark.  My sister was driving, and she was getting tired, worried about falling asleep at the wheel.  So she pulled over on the side of the road, and we all got out and started doing stretches and jumping-jacks in the middle of US-36.

I once stopped (I was by myself) in the right lane of I-495 in Delaware under an overpass in order to chip ice off my windshield wipers because the weather was bad enough that they'd become largely useless due to being caked with ice. There was so little traffic by that point that I wasn't much worried about stopping on the highway, and as I recall the shoulder was a mess so I didn't want to stop there. Looking back now, I probably I should have stopped for the night somewhere, but I was driving home from depositions in New Jersey and I didn't think the client would be likely to reimburse me for a hotel on the way home. (Why was I on I-495 coming back from New Jersey? The southern end of the Turnpike was closed due to weather issues. Instead of I-95 through Philadelphia and then I-495, I should have gone west to Harrisburg and then south.)

I had no idea there was road in King County with that much brick paving! I gotta check that out.
