Great information about how bad roads cost us more money in insurance, tire and suspension wear and lives.
I personally feel we've been short-changed by our governments at all levels on this. Letting so much development happen, more people to move in, yet not investing in the infrastructure to support it all.
What's worse, is they haven't invested in an effective regional transit system to take the burden off the highways either.
There is a poll on the site about directing a portion of the gas tax to road repair.
That sounds simple enough...the people driving on the roads more, pay more and it self-sustains. Is that too complex a concept? Does it make more sense to allocate part of the tax money to improving the TTC?
It's sponsored by the CAA...
