2.0 BACKGROUND

2.1Early Development of Cars and Trucks:

A century ago, years ago the first cars and trucks carried occupants and goods along unimproved dirt roads. As cars and trucks evolved, so did roads. First were stone roads, brick roads in urban areas, and finally asphalt and concrete roads of the types now in use. From the one lane roads of the early 1900's, roadways developed into highways and superhighways as more cars were produced which were capable of reaching higher speeds. Skeptical at first, people soon traded their horses for automobiles.
