We simply need to adjust to these things. We can't go speeding down the street at 30MPH willy-nilly. Drive like you are in Beirut and every pothole could be a land mine.

You have to hold elected officials accountable for money they receive.

Remember there are federal high way funds, gas taxes at federal state county and city levels, part of your car registrations licenses fees goes to high way rebuilding, tire disposal tax goes to highway funds, tolls,

so with all of this revenue going to state, county city governments we should have the best highways in this section of the galaxies unless your government leaders are using highway funds for other things \.

so have you ask your government what happen to all that highway bread fred??

where is the highway money honey?

don't want to hear about no new taxes earmarked for highways I want to know where all the money that was supposed to be earmarked for highways was spent on?
