Interstate shoulder drop off

A lot of the interstates, particularly in FL, seem to have a bit of a drop off if you veer just of the edge of the travel lane. It is not a problem for the cars and pickups, but I notice that the tall RV's aren't really comfortable wanting to climb back up on the travel lane. Anyone else notice this? I suspect it results from the DOT adding a thin layer asphalt overlay to the travel lanes, without doing the same to the paved shoulder. I believe it is dangerous and needs to be pointed out to the DOT.

I'm always thankful for some smooth pavement and just try to keep her between the white lines. There is no doubt that our highways are in worse condition today than I've experienced in my lifetime.

Several states now have either grooves or drop offs to wake that sleepy driver also.
