Does your city do this? very annoying!

I realize times are tough- but it seems our city's idea of filling pot holes is putting an orange cone in them! Really?! What annoys you about your home town?

  • Almost as bad as filling it with cold mix. When the temps reach 75 or so,it just comes apart and cars scatter the stuff all over. By the end of the day it looks like it was never done.
    I watched my city fill the same hole 3 days in a row with cold mix this spring. Finally it sunk in and they put in concrete!

  • The ban on all fun on 4th of July. We even have a county ban on sparklers. No firecrackers can leave the ground, or emit sparks....so...um...none. I have to drive 13 miles to Indiana and smuggle my damn sparklers across state lines. LOL

  • Wasting time filling potholes in spring. You know the stuff washes out in a day or two. Total waste!

  • No, but what makes me laugh is driving by a city crew and 2 guys are working hard and then there are like 8 guys standing around smoking, yapping getting paid very well.

  • One of our mail streets has been ripped down to the dirt and closed off for over 3 months now. Other roads have been torn up and fixed, but this one has not. Because of that to get to any of the houses on the other side of that road you have to go at least a mile out of your way. It's really annoying because my daughter's boy friend lives 8 blocks from our house, but to take him home at night I have to drive 3 miles to get him there.
