Mr.T Rant no one knows how to drive

I live in a town of 12,000, 200,000 in 4 counties.

Yesterday a truck over turned on the bridge. We had 5 hours or near grid lock city wide - and into the adjacent towns.


ok- it happens.


20 minutes ago- a truck has over turned on the bridge. So here we go again.

Where I live, I think turn signal levers must be an option. Maybe 1 in 15 or 20 actually signal when turning or changing lanes.

We had a guy turn over in a gasoline truck, killing several folks, to include himself, on a critical bridge leading to Kennedy space center a while back, and with incentives, they fixed it in 25 days.

25 days to fix a bridge? Wow that's incredible, ancona! [no sarc] I am amazed that .gov could act that fast...

Probably hired it to private contractors. If it was done by all-government employees, they would still be sorting out who wears what colour of hard hat, how many minorities to hire to fill quota, and do they face the sun or turn their backs to it when they lean on their shovels (for photo ops).

There is nothing wrong with the bridge. Nothing at all.
