We have high state and city tax but the worst roads in the nation, why? Where is all the money going? They try and say it's the winters that tear up the streets, but look at Colorado and Kansas they have harsh winters with thawing, freezing and plows clearing roads and their roads are immeasurably better than Oklahoma’s.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and the state of Oklahoma are an F---ing joke, just another reason why I'm moving my family out of state.

why oh why should i pay to drive somewhere out of town to okc and howmuch of a bonus does the director get and contractors get while we as okies pay the bill for past state employees to live lavis in their homes and say we as oklahomans but actually they mean themselves. here in tulsa we have city officails that work only 6 months out of the year and they want more than 18k for a job that really a retired oklahoman should have instead of sticking it to the citizens to pay these out rageouse costs to roads and highways they say it cost 20k to fix a pot hole but the hole is in their coat pockets or in some account i say vote against any hike to pay more til they give us more for the sweat and blood that we as real oklahomans works for.

we have tolls and our roads are sh it! plus we have some many wrong people in office that i truley think they need to tested on a lie detector at least 5 times a year bc of so much back and fourth like our state officals are in the capital. some may not even know this but our last gov. wanted to have a pool outlined as the state and guess how much that cost you dont want to know but we still need better roads and highways but most of all we need just real hard oklahomans that want a real change for our eyes to see instead on paper to campaign for re-elections. i dont know about you but my hard earn taxes should not be used towards bonuses for any city or state officials use the money you earn to go to the resorts instead of taxes that could pay to bull doze down the tolls that we so do not need and if im not mistaken i thought they were to be gone years ago! wow!!!! what liers we elected to ofice to feed their bank accounts

I have lived all over the world. I think Oklahoma's roads are about the worst I have ever driven on - worldwide. I drove on better roads in Iraq. I should send the state the bills for all of my front end alignments on my car. Where is the money going to? You tax food, you tax roads, you have one of the highest sales taxes in the nation. Shameful. Oklahoma - land of bad roads, bad politics and thieves. When I leave here I am never coming back and I will do my best to avaoid even driving through the place.

who makes you drive the toll roads? They're well maintained and will be the first roads to be cleared of ice and snow in the winter. You dont like em, then take another highway, or county road. Teach the turnpike bunch a lesson and don't drive on the turnpike.
