    Maybe we should fine WSDOT for causing some of the worst congestion in the country and keeping the issue completely off their list of priority's. Their solution to the downtown seattle I5 bottleneck is to repaint the lanes which will take around 5 years and 30 million dollars. i badly want the WSDOT reformed.

      DOT gets an obscene amount of money they could fix all the roads and bridges but they are poorly managed and we have corrupt union members who pad their hours.
