or, the people who drive these streets and benifit from these utility upgrades could just have a little patience and only drive at a speed given the road conditions until they are repaired.

You cannot hold gov't accountable for anything.

Even the police are not responsible for coming to your aid.

Meanwhile, liberals want us to depend on these unaccountable services.

The only reason I do not agree with Premier is because, while yes, drivers should be driving at reasonable, safe speeds, the work on these roads should have been done right in the first place. They did the quickest job they could in filling the roads back in because they don't have to drive down them, they don't give a crap what they look like and they're not paying to pave them the tax payers are.

As for Erik's liberal b.s. everythings gotta be the liberals fault right? Give me an fn break. Seriously, there you go again blaming everything on an 'affiliation' tag because Conservatives do no wrong. Get off your high horse.

seems to me that if these companies can cover up the holes when they are done, they could at least cover them up SMOOTHLY.

Do you have any idea how much that will cost. At work they fianlly paved over a section of road that cover a couple city blocks. They did so because it was ruining transfer vehicles and people were getting injure using it. It cost the company over $100,000 to get that snall section done.

Shouldn't these companies post a bond? In weeks Arch Street has taken years off my Ford's suspension.

I would say that Arch street going towards 3rd is just unacceptable. Regardless of how slow you go, you're in for a wild ride.

The Republicans have done a lot of wrong, except for Reagan. And while you are bawling out Erik, Give a little to Shambo for blaming everything on Bush. I think he has a Bush fetish.

It costs too much to fix roads because liberals have forced "prevailing wages" on state contracts.

That means that while the state could hire a contractor to fix the roads at $15 per hour, they are forced to pay $30 per hour because that is what unionized workers get.

Then, the community wonders why their tax dollars cannot fix the roads.

Sure beats a horse and buggy and no road at all,with all that is going on in the world it's a pretty sad day when all you can do is cry about some messed up pavement that if you had any clue you would know the new cant be placed until the weather cooperates grow up you sorry sap
