I have lived in Vermont for 36 years, and have driven thousands of miles on rainy, snowy dark nights. The lack of white lines on the right edge has forced me to slow down, sometimes to a crawl. Which do you prefer, death by going off the road, or death by being rammed from behind by someone who's driving too fast?

Half of an explanation is that many of the roads are managed by the towns, which skimp on the paint. Could you imagine if there were no state regulations for natural gas pipes? This is the state not regulating what the towns do with painting the road lines. But as asserted above, it's also the state not using better quality paint.

Thank you everyone from outside Vermont for providing perspective.
