HOW BAD DOES IT HAVE TO GET BEFORE THE LEGISLATURE WILL #FIXCAROADS?
For Immediate Release: February 24, 2017
The poor condition of California’s roads and transportation system is being exposed every day, with grave consequences to California motorists and our quality of life. Each day brings new reports of road failures, massive sinkholes, rutted roads and other nightmares for drivers. While some of these conditions are unavoidable emergencies due to heavy rains, many of these problems could have been avoided through regular maintenance of our roads – repaving, repairing potholes before they grow larger, fixing drainage and reinforcements to prevent erosion, mud and rock slides.
Fix Our Roads is supporting SB 1 (Beall) to provide long-term, stable transportation funding to our state’s transportation network. The longer we delay, the more we all pay.
