Going, coming, going. We’re always in a rush to get where we need to be. Rarely do we think about that roads that get us there. Maybe we should.

In the 2012 California Local Streets and Roads Statewide Needs Assessment released this month, statistics reveal that the majority of the state’s counties had roads that are considered “risky”.

Both Sutter and Yuba Counties scored 56 out of 100 in the report. Turns out, nearly the entire state of California is filled with overused roads, in desperate need of maitnance, according to the report.
