Louisiana has the worst roads ever followed closely by California.

Both of which are governed by a corrupt government. Where do you think all of the money that WAS appropriated for improving the sates highway infrastructure is going?

Here's a reminder of the section of our Community Rules that pertain to political discussions.

General discussions of politics, general government policies, weaponry, gun rights and religion are not allowed in ANY areas of iRV2. Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.

Thanks

I vote for mass, then connecticut followed very closely by Rhode island. Terrible roads. Can't wait to move out of here.

Actually the south use to use sand more than salt (that was one way to tell a transplant was how rusted the car was from salt). Now the south adds salt brine to the sand. But salt doesn't melt ice below a certain temp anyway.

Best way to remove ice is to stay put til Mother Nature does it for you.

All DOT must use something to keep the sand from freezing in the pile. Either keep it in heated sheds or use a brine of some sort. Some heat the sand in a plant so it is hot so it will stick to the ice.

I have no intentions of traveling over any ice or snow with the coach.

For decades, the DOT down here in the south didn't worry about brine or heating the sand etc since we don't get below freezing all that many days in a row.

Michigan. We spend bookoo bucks on roads and their crap. We live on a gravel road that's way better than most of the blacktop and concrete roads. I've heard this is at least in part because we have no state standard for construction. If you've ever been on I-75 crossing the mi-ohio border you'll see what I mean.
