It's Friday.
Will today's latecomers speed across Gate Road and nuke the city with dust?

A low dust afternoon, and here's how high the dust gets thrown up by one vehicle speeding (it's running around and outside the perimeter).
So get one doing that on Gate Road where the surface has been getting pounded all week...

Wind settled down near sunset. Dust hung over the city. Dust kicked up into the air hung over the city.

Yeah, because we all know how unsafe it is to have dust on your license plate. If your bike is blocking your plate, that's just an accident waiting to happen.
