Do you think that the major road construction companies receive giant donations from tire companies?
I don't know about the roads where you might live, but the roads around my area suck! It seems like our major company, "Penn Dot", is always working on a road somewhere. They drag it out forever, and never seem to accomplish anything. In some cases, it takes years, before I see an actual extension to a road they have been working on. Aside from that, it takes forever, for them to get around to fixing the roads full of potholes. Once they finally do, in a year or two, the road starts falling apart again! It makes me wonder if they build cheap highways on purpose, to wear out our tires faster
I believe that they do! It makes sense to me. Some roads, such as huge turnpikes and superhighways, seem like they are indestructible. I rarely ever see any work being done on them. They take forever, before they start to break down, and just as I returned back from my recent trip to Florida, I noticed something else!
I could do 70-90 mph, on all the interstate roads in the rain, with no trouble or hydroplaning at all. The whole way through Virginia and West Virginia yesterday, it was poring! I sped almost the whole way without any trouble. Then when I got into PA, and drove on our roads that weren't major highways, I was all over the road in the rain. Puddles were laying everywhere, and I couldn't do more than 40, without putting myself at risk for an accident.
Interstate highways never seem to hold water. They have to be designed not to. It only makes me assume that the road construction companies don't do it on ALL the roads, due to the high cost it might be, to build such highways.
Coarse then again, maybe they also do it for job security!
