CALTRANS is spending money

So CALTRANS has finally started spending money on our roads. What do they think is the best use of the money? Well, they are putting fresh concrete in all the median areas - the strips between the freeways and the on/off ramps - you know: the places that cars are NOT driving on...

CALTRANS has a special division that does nothing but think up ways to piss of the taxpaying public. It consists of 3 guys, two guys sitting at a table bouncing ideas off each other, and 1 guy standing in the corner holding a sign the says SLOW on it.

If they actually started fixing the things they said they'd fix with the tax hikes, they'd have a hard time selling the next tax hike in a few years.

To be fair, the federal gas tax was last raised over two DECADES ago. It's one of the reasons our infrastructure is so fucked up at this point.

Federal gas tax NEEDS to go up. These roads and bridges aren't free, and cheap gas is screwing over the coffers that are suppose to pay for the maintenance and updates.

Why? If it's a federal problem, why can states outside of CA have normal roads (and cheaper gas), while CALTRANS can't do anything?
