I drove from Atlanta to El Paso in1965. When I got to Dallas, I was halfway there. There were places where it might have been close to 100 miles between gas stations. I'm sure it's different now, but I would have thought 30- or 40-minute response time would have been good. My last home was about 110 miles from Atlanta - 15 miles from a grocery store. I thought a 15-minute response time would have been outstanding. I wonder how many more sheriff's deputies and vehicles would be required to reliably provide a 5- or 10-minute response.
