Canada is no better.


Sorry to hear that you lamp got smashed due to such a stupid reason.

I tell you that much... don't go to Germany, cause once you see their roads you will cry every day.

Imagine much darker asphalt mixed with recycled rubber from tires.

I have no clue why North America doesn't realize that the rubber in that asphalt improves the grip ten fold.

Think Government THINK!

Rubber on Rubber = Greater Traction. DUH.

Not mentioning the environmental point of view here... pointing at the countless piles of used tires all across North America.

Thomas, i'll tell you why they don't. $$$$$ They rather save a couple of bucks and replace the road ever 10 years or so then spend alot of money at once and have a road that will last alot longer. But JJ, i feel your pain. Back in Feb, I bent two rims when a pot hole ate the side of my car.

Very true, There's alot of sink holes in my town . There's one right in the middle of main street. It sinks a little and almost every other month they pur more pavment over it. They'll do anything to get out of really fixing somthing.
