well put aeriel.
My biggest issue is our obsession with "build out, not up". Our roads are **** because we all keep building new houses in new suburbs creating a volume of road surface that simply isn't sustainable on the tax base of our population.
no one seems to notice that though because "it's the governments fault the city can't afford to fix the roads" but heaven forbid we have to pay enough taxes to actually cover the expense.
sigh, I guess that's what happens when your cities in the middle of a prairie, one of the few places space is NOT at a premium.
Just my opinion on our continuous hatred of our streets and planning. Don't get me wrong, the city planners are idiots for doing this and creating these boneheaded situations, but they're doing it because someones asking for it.
