Two things before everyone starts. It’s been getting better but it takes time. The second thing is these guys are motivated to point out deficiencies so they get more work.

Even if they’re motivated pointing out deficiencies… that means there’s still deficiencies, right? Like, they can’t just fabricate things that aren’t there.

There will always be deficiencies, I think that's the point they're making. The US is weird about grading where anything less than an A is unacceptable.

I'm not really seeing it here but these threads tend to dive into people shitting on the US's infrastructure (which by most rankings is some of the best in the world) because an organization who's job it is to be critical about our infrastructure issues a report that's critical on our infrastructure.

That said this state's infrastructure does fucking blow. Like I grew up in Ohio and thought ours was bad but moving to PA was eye-opening. Thank god our state police are funded though, that's something no other state has figured out how to pay for without dipping into money that's supposed to go to road maintenance /s.

Oh yeah, but they maybe incredibly minor.

Sure, that’s probably bound to happen, but I would say PA deserves a low grade for infrastructure, no?

Is your car in perfect condition? Is that minor squeak worth fixing or is it a turn up the radio problem?

Dude, the roads do not have MINOR problems, you have to be joking.

A lot better than they were. And remember they got so bad because of the stupid no new taxes pledge. Gas tax didn’t go up for so long that the roads fell apart.
