    I have been living in my house for about 5 years now. Our little dead end road was full of bumps, potholes, and it was a very uncomfortable experience to go on. My dad has been very assertive at bugging our representatives to pave our road, and years later, they are doing it. It may have been more years if my dad hadn't been up their ass the whole time, which turned out to be a good thing.

    They finished all the new sidewalks yesterday, and I expect them to tar in the next few days. I hear the machinery as I type this, and I am extremely excited!

    Pretty sweet...I remember that our road was like this many years back when I still lived at home...the biggest pain is trying to keep the vehicles clean after a good rain...

    There's a road at home in Calgary that is literally the worst excuse for a paved road I have ever seen and am likely ever to see. It was paved once a long time ago and there are still little bits of pavement that haven't completely disintegrated (little one square foot patches). It literally looks like a gravel road, feels like a gravel road, and for all purposes might as well be a gravel road. But it was paved... but now it's just crumbled so much that it's almost entirely just loose material. And a road has to be pretty bad to be worse than the roads I biked on in Quebec... and those were pretty damn bad.

    I take it you live in an old house then. Because one would think that modern houses have to be built with a proper road next to them.

    We've got this main drag off the main highway that goes to the hospital.
    There are so many smoothed over cracks that at any given time you can feel the bumps going through the suspension.
