In my area eastern PA, all the local roads, from what are almost single lane rural back roads, to state routes, and in many cases even interstates are really terrible. I call it "going offroading on blacktop" just because there are so many bumps, potholes, and uneven surfaces. The guy at the local shop where I buy my tires even says that the condition of our roads really reduces the lifespan of a tire. We pay so much in taxes at the local, state and federal level, on top of gasoline taxes that youd think we would be able to build roads that wont tear out the suspension on your car. Another thing I cant figure out is why a local township recently tore up a perfectly good, even, flat road that was just repaved last year, and than repaved it again this year. I travel that stretch of road every day, and never noticed anything amiss. I can only help but think that they had extra money in their budget that they had to get rid of this year and they got rid of it by tearing up and repaving a perfectly good road.
