Used to be there was a Minnesota Highway Department, it took care of Highways. Nowadays we have MnDOT which installs bike trails, hikeing paths, fancy highways, sound barriers, LRT, Bus, North Star rail, and anything close to a highway. They waste so much taxdollars on anyting but highways the roads are junk!!

Meanwhile the nonhighway users like bikers pay NOTHING to build/maintain bike paths. LRT/bus/other rail pay nothing for the roads their users depend on for everything they depend on to live. It's time to reconstruct a Highway Department and dedicate all vehilce related taxes to Highways. NO MORE MVST to rail, NO MORE MnDOT resources used to nonpaying users of bike paths.

All the sicko SOBs in the Legislature who demand we walk, bike, or use unsafe mass transit can go to he11. You know who you are. Minnesota weather does not allow for bikes, walking etc. Minnesota you need an attached garage and remote start to support a tolerable commute on junk roads.
