The pressure to expand and widen Trans Mountain Road seems to be coming from groups more interested in commercial development along the route, which will result not only in ruining the beauty of the area but causing even more congestion as these businesses grow.

I'm with you Rick Jordan. Unfortunately, its the 'sine'of the times. Spelling has become 'opshunal'.

Maybe the signs should be left blank and people can google them while in their car to find out what different meanings apply to a certain color and shaped sign.

Bad Drivers:

You have seen El Paso motorists turn on their blinker? Maybe there is hope. Half the drivers in this town don't even know what it is.

How about the moronic situations at an El Paso four way stop wherein people just freeze. Then there are those who intend to make a left hand turn at a traffic light on a busy intersection and refuse to move up and end up sitting there through one or even two green lights.

I guess it is just another "El Paso thing".

It's that superior attitude that the Catholic Church has that led it to murder millions of innocent men, women, and children throughout its history. This so-called holy church is at its best when it tortures and kills those who do not believe in the church's superiority and infallibility. No other religion has brought so much pain and death to humanity like the Catholic Church all while doing it in the name of their "virgin" Mary and Jesus. Look it up..

Not to say that Islam is any better? They killed people who refused to convert just as The Spanish Catholic Church did in the 1600s and Pope Constantine did in the early church. The church never proclaimed superiority, just the leaders who were and have always been men. But you want something closer to look at, then try the Aztecs, the Olmecs and other Central American tribes from 0800-1600. They all have a bloody history of blood sacrifices to appease their Gods.

Not an El Paso thing. This problem occurs in Almost every city. Ours is compounded by drivers from Mexico and people who have decided that using a cell phone while driving is cool. Then there are the occasional drivers who actually have car trouble and can't move. Maybe what you need to do id check your ego at the front door, drive defensively and stay far enough back to avoid the obvious idiots who think they are Kyle Busch or Jimmie Johnson.

None of these religions have murdered as many people as the Catholic Church has. None. And it wasn't just the Spanish Catholic Church, but the entire organization murdered innocent human beings for not accepting their doctrine. Look what happened to the Cathars, the Jews, Moslems, agnostics, Protestants, indigineous peoples, and on and on. The Catholic-sponsored Crusades was responsible for millions of innocents to be tortured and murdered. This so-called holy church is nothing but evil. The church has indeed proclaimed superiority in all matters that pertain to jesus and their virgin mary. Disgusting.

Maybe they just ran out of room at the end if it was an electric sign?

read your history ese. the moors went through all of north africa and spain until charlemagne defeated them at the battle of tours and kept them out of france. the thought was if you cant convert then kill them because they are better off dead. azzzhole santa ana played the moorish death march at the alamo to try and intimidate the texans. islam has killed far more than the catholics. most of the death caused by the catholic discoverers was do to disease. the new worlds had not been exposed to the diseases the europeans had already gone through. heck, captain cook nearly wiped out all of the native hawaiians just by being there. who defeated the christian crusades for jerusalem. the islamist.

If Hunt Ind. want's to widen trans mountain road, it will be done! Money talks and what Hunt or Jobe want, they will get, it does not matter what the public want's. Elect officials can spin the matter all they want but they know what the outcome will be!

If you really want to ease congestion on the great I-10 parking lot, expand the border highway without that nasty Toll road. How are you going to tell an out of town trucker that they have to use a toll road when there is a free one going the same way? How many Sams, Walmart, and Albertson trucks use 62-180 just becauase it is less congested - with cops! Step two? partner with New Mexico and expand Anthony Gap! Anthony Gap has one advantage that Transmountain will never have. they don't close Anthony Gap every time we have inclement weather! they also don't have a bunch of businesses fighting to keep an overpass from going in and hurting their trade in Anthony Gap. the only thing they have right now is the Dona Anna Community College and they could care less! None of these are new suggestions, but I realize why they are no popular. It isn't about the smooth flow of traffic or safety. It's all about "Show Me the Money!" Look and see who's pockets are bulging. Then look to see who is making all of these arbitrary decisions. Why -- they are the same people! Now we understand.
