Columnist Annoyed With Crappy Highways

New, 2 comments

A Sac Bee columnist has had enough of California's pothole-ridden highways, and he's not afraid of comparing us to West Virginia to get our attention. Dan Walters notes that our gas tax is tied for last among 17 states he covered on a recent road trip, and actually only covers a little over half of what we need for "annual rehabilitation." And apparently, says the California Transportation Commission, we have the "second worst road conditions in the nation." More grist for the 1A mill? [Sac Bee]
