Fix Ohio Roads? Nah, Just Buy a More Expensive Car

I saw this car commercial a while ago and it rubbed me the wrong way immediately.  But lately I’ve been listening to sports talk radio and the audio version, coupled with a recent Plain Dealer article, pushed me over the edge to respond.  Check this out:

When the American Society of Civil Engineers rates Ohio’s roads D-, one might think to invest more to repair our infrastructure.  Maybe we should be thinking about raising revenue to pay for things like safe roads, rather than just cutting services?  Nah, let’s just all save up to buy a nice new car instead!

All across Ohio there road and bridge projects stalled, but it’s commercials like this that show us just how far we’ve fallen.  If you can’t afford a $50,000 car – tough luck.
