Call­ing en­trepreneurs

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Got a call from my wife Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon; she was head­ing home from vis­it­ing with her sis­ter in Mem­phis and was stuck for hours on In­ter­state 40 due to an ac­ci­dent. We don’t drive I-40 from Lit­tle Rock to Mem­phis very of­ten, but it seems we get caught in an ac­ci­dent tie-up about a quar­ter of the time.

I’ve got a sug­ges­tion for some en­trepreneurs in the Carlisle, Hazen, and For­rest City ar­eas. Get your­self a Port-A-Potty and put it on a small trailer with wide bal­loon tires. Pull it with your four-wheeler on the shoul­ders of the in­ter­state when it’s shut down for an ac­ci­dent and charge folks a nom­i­nal fee to re­lieve them­selves.

I know from ex­pe­ri­ence that it’s very easy to reach “crit­i­cal mass” when stuck in two- to four-hour grid­lock on the in­ter­state. SCOTT D. STUBENRAUCH
