  • Someone PLEASE take Merritt Perry’s pencil away, after what was done to Ross Hill Rd. I thought it was a joke until I found out that stuff won’t wash off in the rain. I almost ran over a dog trying to figure out where to drive.

  • The city will have designated dog walking lane later in the year. Just waiting until the drivers figure out where the pedestrians belong and the nonexistent(?) bikers belong. The dogs will be required to pass all DMV walkers laws before going out on their own. PETA will oversee the first 6 months to report on the success to the Council.

  • After how badly they fucked up ross hill, I hope no one lets them touch any roads ever again. We need a law that anyone designing roads is required to have a driver’s license.
