    A quick question i need you all to answer

    Ok, I'm doing a science fair project, which is pretty stupid by the way, about building new roads. I need to get at least 35 votes before Tuesday the 15th. So please answer the question because it will be really helpful to me!!!

    So here's the question: Would you be willing to pay higher taxes for better roads that wouldn't have to be repaired as much, meaning less road construction, no potholes, and maybe other advantages like more traction and a smoother ride?

    Please answer either yes, no, or maybe. Thanks!

    Sure I'll help out.
    No - because I feel their are more important things that I'd be willing to rise taxes for (such as more hospitals), over roads.

    Yes- less road construction means that the people in those ambulances don't have to take a detour.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    Yes - where I live theres always road construction going on somewhere or another on route to where I need to go, they've been rebuilding a part of a road near where I live for 3 months now and I have to wait a good 10-15 minutes in the bus to get through.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.

    Yes- it would indirectly benefit hospitals anyway, since there would probably be less road accidents.



    I never add friend codes.

    No. Studies in Ohio have already shown that with the current funding, we could get better roads such as you've mentioned. However, the road workers union voted the materials down specifically due to the fact that they would have less work, therefore less pay.

    Not sure if you are aware, but road teams get paid only when they are "on-site" (unlike teachers who get paid all year since we really do do work when you all think we're not). During the "inclement" weather weeks, they are always granted unemployment and can keep the "on-job" benefits.

    My sister-in-law is a road worker. It's sad how little work they usually do per hour. THEY have engineer who have final say over every aspect of a project (materials, personel, equipment, hours required/when/etc., interruptions which include everything from too much sun, darkness, cold, heat, wind, lack of wind, precip, traffic, etc.). She made $35us/hr to stand for no more than FIVE hours per shift holding a stop/slow sign. The other FIVE hours of her shift were for break/lunch/setup/cleanup/whatever. The site manager would always buy water/gatorade and snacks on the State's ticket.

    Sometimes unions just aren't a good thing. And yes, my dad was a teamster for 37 years and I'm in a teachers union so I'm not an anti-union freak.
