* I'm saying most people don't look through the eyes of a 4-wheel vehicle
driver. It's just silly for a hiker to see a perfectly passable path called
impassable, which isn't even a degree of smoothness, just because a car
can't pass there, mainly because of the width.
What to change? Refer only to the vehicles the scale is meant for.

* Good unpaved roads have smoothness=bad. That doesn't make much sense to
me. Looks like it's not about smoothness, but about how fast you can drive.
