Another View: State needs courage at the Capitol


- Poor condition of Michigan roads plays a part in up to one-third of the state’s fatal or serious traffic accidents.

- Substandard roads may cost the average Michigan driver more than $500 a year in repair bills.

At some point all that adds up to a state that doesn’t care about the damage it causes its economy by letting roads crumble. Or about the growing financial burden it places on future generations to fix those roads. It’s time to find some courage and get this done.
