Your Tax Dollars at Work

While driving from California to New York, I came across this scene many times in every state.

Road work.

I was a bit surprised, though, at the condition of America's roads; they're in pretty good shape. Given the amount of daily traffic, the highways and byways - at least I-40, I-70 and I-95 - were easy to drive and are getting plenty of attention and tax dollars to make them even better.

On the down side, I saw way to many dead animals - mostly deer - in every state. Far more roadkill than I saw just four years ago when I drove from Florida to California.
