I am not quite sure how the infrastucture in the states is, but up here in Canada, its BAD. A fairly large portion of the bridges and roadways in BC have seen moderate to little maintenance for the past 20 or so years, and things are starting to show thier age in places.
Maybe the government has something to do with it, but in a different way, where could all the money be going that should be keeping the infrastructure in tip-top shape, hmm?
