Patriotic Bristol...

Bristol, RI isn't satisfied with those boring yellow lines for the road centerline. They show their patriotism by using red-white-blue. They've been doing this for many years, and there is even an exception to the nationwide Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices specification for road markings that specifically allow them to do this. The oldest 4th of July parade in the US is in Bristol and follows the route of the road with the red-white-blue centerline (Rt 114 or Hope St, Bristol). It's about 2 1/2 miles in length.
