  1. More round about the state removed the traffic circle the same thing because they were unsafe. Something about the stop signs while the round about a do not have stop signs. Now the idiots do not have to stop and can just run other cars over.

  2. Road improvements sometimes take longer than we think they should, but sometimes that is simply due to all the complex steps involved in getting the project done.
