We hope they captured the sweet Flowmasters we installed on our ride.

Take a Shallow Breath

Drivers entering I-10 East at Studemont this morning might've noticed something weird as they hurtled into traffic. Parked on the shoulder was a big van with a flashing light and a logo that read "Digital Reality Capture." Near the van were a couple of things that looked like cameras, although we assume the preferred term is "digital reality capturers."

We hit up TXDOT spokeswoman Janelle Gbur, who called around and got back to us with the 411.

"Consensus is that it is an emissions-gathering installation," she says.

Well, dang, we were kind of hoping it was something more sinister. — Keith Plocek
