I would agree that the addition of Shoulders along N is an excellent idea. Now at least you are beginning to think This act would most certainly help good drivers however you people who believe that you can push the Gas petal to the floor, well we will be reading your story on these same pages.

William Braudis - I think you would benefit from taking an English class. That way, when you thoughtlessly insult the dead, you can at least come across as well-educated.

My God william, so now we have to scratch reading comprehension and reading between the lines off your list of abilities now!? What do you think people meant when they said they should fix the damn road? If it makes you feel like a man to to be snarky toward peoples pain and slander the dead, more power to you. You live in america. Obivously you don't care about this because your a troll. But just know that wentzville finds you to be incredibly weak. And can guarantee you are a incredibly meek in person as well.
