Why is everyone scared traveling east bound on US RT 22 after MacArthur Road just because PennDOT put some Jersey barriers on the shoulder of the road for construction. Everyone slows down to 25 MPH and the back up extends to the Turnpike exit
IF YOU ARE THAT SCARED OF A JERSEY BARRIER DONT DRIVE ON 22
The ability to buy small amounts of wine in supermarkets, and the ability to buy wine from out-of-state wineries without being labeled a "criminal" are minuscule steps in modernizing Pennsylvania's antiquated alcohol laws. Truly "consumer friendly" laws won't be enacted so long as the UCFW has a stranglehold on a majority of state legislators.
PennDot just "oil and chipped" several heavily traveled roads in Lower Saucon. This cheap crap belongs on rural roads in places like Potter county, not Friedensville or Seidersville Roads with constant rush hour traffic. The pebbles fly up and chip your paint and windshield, and my property was subject to a day-long dust cloud from passing cars yesterday. Also witnessed a car almost skid out on a curve due to loose pebbles. They just raised the gas tax, so why is PennDot claiming poverty and saying they need to use this crap?
