Roads. They have potholes. Councils. They don't have money. But wait. Business's have money. Business's can adopt the roads. But what will they get. One in ten roads as advertisement. But i don't want more adverts. The advertisments will only be available in already commercial areas.

Besides, i'd get great satisfaction in walking all over Microsoft, or leaving tyre marks on Halfords.

       Subliminal advertisemsnts using reflectors in grooves in the road that flash up slogans while driving at night? (Flash!) Man that was bright. I think I want a slurpee now.   

       Most US states have an Adopt-A-Highway program, but I've never seen any "suits" out picking up trash like they're supposed to. They seem to outsource the work to the community service people (read: felons)..

       Well if it doesn't include general road up-keep, and giant on-road advertisment, then its not 'widely baked'. And i thought that was only high-ways?
