If you live in or use the roads of Virginia and you’re not paying attention to the potential remedies, or lack thereof, you need to be.
To get you started:
What would our area look like if the localities had to pay for subdivision roads? Who will bear the brunt? (Property owners!) Why no more interest in a broad-based or use tax such as a gas tax or tolls? Those who are our elected representatives need to do what they have volunteered to do – represent the best interests of their constituents. That 2007 is an election year and many will be pandering for re-elections is a shame.
Why not light rail or some other form of transit? Why is it always about roads? We have a responsibility to look to the future. Otherwise, we will look back twenty or thirty years from now and curse our predecessors (and ourselves) for our irresponsibility and lack of vision.
