"I have found out that there ain't no surer way tofind out whether
you like people or hate them than to travel with them."
– Mark Twain
There's nothing like the thrill of the open road! The company you keep on a road trip can either make it a great trip or lead to … murder!!!
By the mid-1920s, car radios did exist, but the technology was in its infancy and only the rich had bulky car radios. Just ten years later in the 1930s, car radios became more common and eventually car manufacturers included radios in the dashboard design. Drivers were able to listen to the radio on the go and with the new 41,000 miles of roads created by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. The modern road trip was born!
