    Driver Sends Gas Bill To State

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio woman has sent Michigan
    transportation officials a bill for the $16 she says she wasted on
    gasoline sitting in construction zone traffic. Carol Greenberg
    tells The Blade there were no signs warning about the work on
    southbound Interstate 275, about 30 miles north of Toledo. So, she
    says she got stuck idling for about 50 minutes while trying to get
    home with her cat after a visit to a veterinarian outside Detroit.
    She says her cat Sammy disliked the delay and howled the whole
    time. In response, the Michigan Department of Transportation wrote
    her, saying it's unable to reimburse drivers for time, wages, or
    gas lost in work zone back-ups.

    Coincedence!

    I just read an article about the states plans to reconstruct a narrow bridge on the road I take to work, the article said they'll have to completely close the bridge for "several months". If this plan does indeed go through, my normal 6 mile commute will be about 30 miles. Thats an additional 384 miles a month!!!! (4 day work week) Thats approximately $60 a month in extra gas.

    384 miles in my truck is over $90.00. (Just thought that might help you feel better about it to know that.)
