We won't discuss those suicide nets at Foxconn. When I look through the video retrospectives I can only wish I had 1/10000000 of the influence he did to impact a handful of people much less the entire world.

The no passing zone sign idea...unenforceable for the most part, and there's no budget to pay for the signs or the manpower to install them. More aggressive enforcement?
