LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A new study says that the pavement on the roads in Los Angeles ranks among the worst in the U.S.

Rough Roads Nothing New For LA Drivers: KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou Reports

According to the survey conducted by TRIP, a national transportation group, nearly two-thirds of L.A.’s streets are poorly paved and may pose a threat to drivers — along with their wallets.

Roads in poor condition are typically marked by potholes, uneven pavement, and cratering, issues that aren’t unfamiliar to many Southland drivers. But the financial cost of fixing these problems — or not fixing them — may ultimately determine if the city can improve its standing for 2011.

    Where is all the road tax money going? We need to stop spending all of the money on illegals and worthless city, county and state workers and spend the money where it benefits the taxpayers, you know, the people who are driving on these roads trying to get to WORK…………

    Bet road funds are being put into the general funds at the state, county, and city levels. Seems to be the standard operating practices all over the country these days. There should be laws against these types of moves.

    It’s from all the illegals using the road as a bathroom.
