I cannot believe the Texas State Troopers Association has not sought injunctive relief in the courts. They are being abused by their employer every mile they are forced to drive on it.
Hopefully the engineers responsible for this did not take their ethics in government class at the Marie Antoinette School of “let them eat cake.”
The actuaries (engineers) who signed off on this should apologize first to their alma maters for using their degrees so badly. Second to their neighbors who must use this travesty. Third to the state of Texas as a whole.
The blood pressure pill salesman must love this road surface. A 15 percent increase in sales all because somebody wanted to squeeze out 2 percent.
I may actually be way out of line. You may be using this road surface as a Medicaid reduction program. “Kill them off before they can collect.” Is “Soylent Green” next?
“Yippee we saved $315,000 on that job. So what if it cost the users an extra $22 million and 440,000 months of shortened life. We are under budget.”
It is so relaxing to get to either end of this surface, that it gives me a greater awareness of what fire walking must be like.
This letter is being sent to every medical professional in the affected area. In hopes that they will become the driving force to make you see the hardship you have caused and have you immediately correct this intolerable situation.
Use reserve or emergency funding to quit killing the people of western Parker County and all of the people of Palo Pinto County.
Your physical and economic assault is wholly unjustified. Somehow those before you maintained the roads without resorting to malfeasance.
Let me be the first to name it. RRS. Rough Road Syndrome. The newest environmental hazard facing the country.
