Washtenaw County road workers shouldn't have to play 'Frogger' when fixing potholes
I'm wondering what the official policy is for repairing potholes on Washtenaw County's highways. I'm guessing that two workers scooping and dumping loose asphalt by shovel, darting onto the highway between traffic, during rush hour, while their truck is parked precariously on the shoulder is not the official process. I have observed this a couple of times recently during my morning commute into Ann Arbor.
I will guess that it is too costly in today's environment to have an arrow truck behind these workers alerting drivers to merge out of the lane well ahead of the danger. But is it really too costly to save the workers’ lives or those of the drivers trying to dodge them at the last minute?
I really think this game of highway maintenance "Frogger" is irresponsible on someone's part. Aaron S. Tanner Chelsea
