pot hole They're out there - looming like giant craters on the Moon.

Route 21, off Washington Street all the way to Grapevine
Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia

Route 21 is full of potholes. It is causing problems starting from coming off Washington Street to Route 21 all the way out to Grapevine. The roads should not be in this bad of shape, making automobiles out of line, having to buy tires. I can go on and on. You have to drive like your drunk to avoid hitting holes. It is a real big deal. It is terrible for our roads to be in this shape. Tar on my truck. Yellow paint on my truck. Instead of the county and state workers standing beside their trucks holding up shovels, why not do something about the the road? I just don't see why we have to pay for our automobiles being fixed because of poor care for our roads..There has been enough drug money taken in over a year to repair all of our roads. Fix my driveway. Where is all the help? I see new trucks everywhere..
