Thanks to our country’s crumbling infrastructure, I’d like to propose the following new reality television drama for A&E:

I-85 Truckers

Watch as some of America’s toughest truckers tackle the nightmarish corridors of infamous Interstate 85! Potholes, giant fissures, abandoned mattresses, and miles with faded, unreadable yellow lines all combine to test the mettle of even the most experienced truckers. Will the ancient, rickety bridges finally collapse? Will our drivers be crushed by falling chunks of overpass?

Follow six intrepid men and women of the road as they risk their lives and their loads on creaky elevated expressways and shambling turnpikes through high mountain passes with rusted out guardrails. Will this season’s crew make it from Alabama to Virginia in one piece?
