Big Brother (insurance company)

The reason I dropped GEICO insurance years ago was because they thought that they had some right to ask me if I had a radar detector in my car, in a state where they were legal. They would send me questionairs!! Insurance companies were never my favorite parts of life in the first place. But, I used to think that they were a little bit necessary.

Vehicle Taking Photographs Of Highway?

I live in the Twin Cities Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MN) Metropolitan area. A few days ago when I was on Interstate 94 there was a vehicle, I think it was a sports utility vehicle of some type, traveling westbound on I-94 with what appeared to be two electronic flashes operating on it. One was about a foot higher than the other one.

Navteq Road Classifications

Navteq classify roads in five different categories:

Main Road
First Class
Second Class
Third Class
Fourth Class

Does anyone know what these road definitions mean?

I'm guessing that 4th class is unpaved and main road is probably a paved divided limited access highway, but that's just a wild guess.
