Oregon and Washington just have less bureaucracy than California (which state doesn't), so they take in less money and use it more wisely. Not that much more wisely though, they're are still a government agency.

The only time I go into California is when I have no choice (ie: A dear friend's funeral). Each time this sort of thing happens it reinforces my vow never to go into California. Be it horrific roads, traffic that makes a rock concert look like a week in the desert, or drivers who got their licenses in CrackerJax boxes, there is no reasonable reason to drive in CA.

Oregon has no sales tax. Washington has no state income tax. Both have good roads. I think you can figure out that it's not lack of money that's California's excuse!

I believe the Feds are responsible for the funds to maintain interstate highways. CA has 2,450 miles of interstates, OR has 730 and WA has 765.

We just got back from our "bucket list" trip to Disneyland. 5 days of fun and sun! Yes, the roads ARE terrible, towing an 8 1/2' wide X 31' 5th wheel through those narrow, pothole ridden freeways is a challenge at any speed, a true white knuckle experience. We didn't break or lose anything though! I didn't feel safe driving at the 55 mph tow limit with traffic whizzing by at 70. I hope we helped out a little by paying all those exorbitant taxes I've never heard of, maybe if we return some day we'll see an improvement due to our tax donations. But it was worth it to spend 5 days at Disneyland.....
