And yes def higher taxes...I will say so far TX is the only place that seems to use tax money for road repairs...a lot of other places seem to just let the roads go to crap or slap a layer over old pavement that eventually sinks lol
That's what they do in Tucson in way of road repair, the freeways are pristine though!

Missouri has some of the crappiest roads in the nation! I can personally attest to that fact!

Me too!! I hate Missouri roads with a passion. I had a double blow out on I-55 S. of Cape Girardeau and just before new Madrid, I hit a huge crator imagine a big pothole with a slab cemet sticking out of it. Needless it to say, it completly bent 2 wheels on a Honda Odyssey. Worst of all the car didn't have but 5,000 miles on it.

Re: Speed bumps

Yeah, so back to speed bumps. Went to Autozone, home of the HUGE fing ones. I was driving my brother in laws '86 Vert. Drove over it, and I sh** you not it scraped the exhaust. I know it's his car, but I bought the damn thing, and I was pissed.

Re: Speed bumps

Before I had my car I drove my dad's car and I couldn't drive it to school thanks to the huge a** speedbumbs in the school parking lot. So I was forced to drive my mom's minivan...eww. Luckily that only lasted half a year. But what a great change! From my mom's minivan to my own brand new 2010 mustang. My love.

It's the o'rileys (checkers) out here that have the nasty a** speed bumps and makes no sense, the parking lot is smaller than my neighbors driveway...

Re: Speed bumps

my side exhaust on the drivers side is sitting low, so i despise speed bumps even more, especially after i hear them scrape on the bump....UGH

Re: Speed bumps

I use to have a gated apartment complex and they had separate entrances and exits that had the spikes that you run over those were actually fine. Once your front tires drove of them and pushed them down it would stay down and your rear tires weight push them down enough to make them come back up...not exactly sure how it worked lol

Now that's a good idea.

We've got those at my school. Not as low, but they're tge same width, from each side on the road, and they're about 5 feet long, so it's not as steep. They aren't so bad.
