Interesting how they ALWAYS use concrete for barriers yet refuse to use it for roads!

If they HAD used concrete and rebar, we wouldn't have the pulverized road beds, collapsed shoulders and high centers we now see on EVERY road these trucks travel on!!!!

And now that we have 230,000 pound loads being driven over them and 10 times the truck traffic, they are having to re-pave these roads constantly!

The clowns in Charleston are even talking about jacking up OUR taxes to pay for the damage these trucks do to the roads!!!

The low IQ politicians in Charleston seem to think a 3,000 pound car causes the same amout of wear and tear as 80,000 pound trucks!

How bout for starters collecting license, registration, and inspection fees from the tens of thousands of drillers and pipe liners who's activities are CAUSING the destruction of are roads!!!

Let's see- 1.2 miles- 2years. With 1 or 2 working and 6 watching. That's about right.

There are some very intelligent quotes worth saving in this article. As an example, "There will be some blasting."
