Bike lanes and nature trails are much more important than good roads. Politicians don't get their names in the paper or on the 6:00 news for road repairs.
Somebody has to tell these career politicians to look in the mirror to find out why we don't have the money to update the roads.
...And with a stroke of the pen, ATA and the DOT put 100,000 truck drivers on new career paths today. They have decided "It just ain't worth it anymore"!
Last time I looked at a map, Mordor DC and Baltimore were both North of the Mason Dixon line.
