A brief but interesting tidbit from Gustavus, the small town on an island near Juneau specializing in residents who like the area but also like the freedom from bureaucracy offered by a place home to 400 people year-round.

Jim Mackovjak shared this item.

It seems before Gustavus had any paved roads, they were gravel and usually full of potholes.

The town decided it was simple to tell sober drivers from drunk drivers. Sober drivers meandered down the roads, going from side-to-side to avoid as many potholes as possible. Drunk drivers thought they were the Indianapolis Speedway and tore along as fast and straight as possible.
