Make all government workers contribute to their own retirement! I'm sick of funding it for them when I can't fund my own!!!
Demand quality from all contractors and only issue performance-based contracts! Get the tree-hugging Marxists and their taxpayer-funded (or deductible) lawyers out of the way of legitimate work!
Quit subsidizing unwanted and failing public transportation boondoggles on the backs of working motorists!!! Look at the cost overruns and GRAFT on the light rail system on the Southside! Has HRT ever not been a drain on taxpayers and when have you ever seen a bus even 1/2 full?
The same goes for AMTRAK! Make the bicycle weenies pay for their own paths and keep them off the road that GAS TAXES pay for! Get the local "traffic engineers" to facilitate traffic, not cater to Wal-Mart and commercial interests by always giving the right of way to TRAFFIC, not their parking lots!!!
Time the stoplights to make traffic FLOW! If they can make them all red, they can make them all green as well! Maybe even make it part of their job/evaluation to drive in rush hour traffic and actually see the messes they have created and make tenure based on PERFORMANCE!
One simple aid for traffic flow is a novel idea called TURN LANES! I am sick of seeing new stores open on the corners of busy intersections and not having a turn lane mandated as part of the permitting process!! If you are going to build there and cause traffic to slow to a stop at the intersection, put a turn lane there to at least help keep traffic flowing!!
Newport News is the biggest offender locally on this one! I could go on with my rant, but I hope you get the idea that I am sick of the incompetence, waste, mismanagement and lack of common sense in traffic management/VDOT!!!!!
