Clearly, you are a local doofus who has never been out of NY State. You probably think going to Buffalo is a trip to the "big city."

Hell, son, ANY interstate in Texas is better than the Thruway. Without exception. And Texas has 10+ times the amount of interstate highway that NY has (NY is a very small state).

You are an uneducated doofus who has never gone anywhere, so you don't know how bad NY is. I get it, when I was a kid, before I'd been anywhere, I thought NY was great. But once I grew up and went to other states, and other nations, I realized that was NOT the case.

NY pays RIDICULOUSLY high income taxes, ridiculously high gas taxes (supposed to go for highways) and tolls on top of that.

What do you get? SHITTY highways. The NY Thruway is the main highway in NY, and it's a MESS. I recently traveled in NY, and they have patched up the area between Buffalo and the PA state line (finally), but even with those repairs, it's still among the worst.

You pay FAR more than most states, and you have far worse highways. Even someone of your clearly limited intellect should be able to understand that you are NOT GETTING WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Seriously, genius, try driving any interstate in Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, or even broke-ass back woods Mississippi and tell me that the Thruway is better.

Oh yeah, and in those states, THERE ARE NO TOLLS, and no high gas taxes, like you have in NY.

New Yorkers are GETTING RIPPED OFF, but are too stupid to see it.

You pay high income taxes, high gas taxes, and get tolled on top of that, yet your interstates are among the worst (if not the worst*) in the country.

You are getting SCREWED.

*Based on my last trip, with the recent Thruway repairs, I might rate the highways in NY SLIGHTLY better than Louisiana, and maybe competitive with PA, but that ain't sayin' much.

Because at least the shitty roads in LA and PA are FREE.

Exactly.

Hell, I'm a native New Yorker, but I'm not freakin' blind.

I can kick in the cruise control and travel 80 mph all freakin' day in Texas, on smooth roads, with 3+ lanes, AND NO DAMNED TOLLS (and with low gas taxes). In NY, the Thruway is OLD, bumpy, and only two narrow lanes- like it hasn't been improved since people were driving Studebakers.

Damn, folks, I know people in upstate NY don't get out much, but for once in your life, try going beyond the borders of NY. You'll see what I mean in no time.

You just don't get it.

We(users of the thruway) pay both. More than 95% of the U.S. Interstate system is supported and maintained using proceeds from the federal gas tax. We all pay that on every gallon of gas we buy. We also pay the tolls.

The way it works now is that states have the option. They can accept the kickback on the federal gas tax or they can toll their portion of interstate. New York chose the tolls so New Yorkers do not see benefit from the federal gas tax we all pay. That means our tax money is going to subsidize the U. S. Interstate Highway System in other states but not ours.

Do a little research before posting such ignorant comments.

Lib 4321. You got the balls to brag about Texas? The whole state is filled with stetson, cowboy boot wearing morons. Most don't have enough brains to come in out of the rain. You included.
And yes, I've been there. I'd rather live in Siberia than that Texas sh*thole.

In any discussion name calling is a sure sign that the person doing it has no valid and intellectually honest points to make. Sure sign of a weak mind.

The funny thing with them saying they'd rather live in Siberia is essentially they do but at least Siberia has the national attention that uticans crave.

You've never been to Texas obviously. The stereotype you have in your head is for little towns out in the boonies. You know like most of NYS.

I'm driving on I20 right now and it's no less or better than the NY toll road. The only difference is business is booming down here.
