For starters, you had to figure it had to be a teenage driver and since it took them so long to release that it the teenager was 16 year old and an "inexperienced driver", is it one of the cop's kid???? Can you say attempted "cover up"????

And for a bridge that was to be closed for what was initially told as a lengthly time be open on less than a month proves that it was a "quick fix" job and that the bridge (rated 2 out of a possible 100) was still safe to drive on after the accident! LOL!!!! Remember, we did this test to find what the worst bridges are in Pennsylvania and they are still going to reopen it. Thank you very much for this waiting to be a tragedy!!!

The bridge will be replaced the day I unfortunately have to drive over it with my family, collapses and we die!!! Maybe we'll get the new bridge named after us. Wait until they close the Coplay bridge next year for it to be torn down and rebuilt. It's gotta be rated higher than a two!!!! Maybe there are two digits in its score!!!!!

Thank you, Ed Rendell, for your support of my safety as a tax paying Pennsylvania citizen. Hope when Obama comes a callin' you go a runnin'!!!!! You know he will!!!!

It'll take a tragedy for them to get this bridge fixed. You want to know where our tax money goes? Take a look at Rendell's house.

Wow, they must have worked non stop 24 hours a day to get everything all fixed up.(Notice the sarcasm?) Don't they think since the rating is so low they should have just kept it closed and built a new bridge? Hey Rendell, what's up? Oh yeah, it doesn't span the turnpike.
