    Stage a sit in. Get about two dozen or so of other like minded folks, drive your cars to the area. Half drive and stop in the east bound lanes and the others stop in the west bound lanes and just sit there for about 3-4 hours with signs that simply say, "Fix the road". When you do it have someone make some calls to get the national media involved. It'll be a hoot!

    I would say that writing letters to the Editor of the Enterprise might work. Nothing like bad press to grease the wheels of inactivity. However, I have done this very thing on this exact issue and the letters do not get published. The letters were on point and I don't know
    a reason for them not to be published. A flood of letters cannot be ignored however.

    The best example is the Delaware portion of I-95 running down the spine of the East Coast.
    It's only 12 miles long, but it'll cost you four bucks to cross it.

    Must be made out of gold, for it to require so much maintenance.

    You and I know, that's not what is happening. As a general rule, the cost for a toll is supposed to pay for the road itself and its upkeep,
    but with Delaware, all of the nation's traffic going up and down the coast is bankrolling their entire road system - and more.

    It's not "paying for roads". Money is fungible - it's paying for whatever they want.

    LOL..probably the same arseclowns at SHA that decided to remove the rest of a disappearing beach and make the st. George's island roadway a beach instead. A half dozen or more times they sent trucks and an excavator down to remove the sand that kept blocking a drain under the road on the beach side. I think they've almost got it now!..the road is under the beach and the drain goes straight to the river real soon.

    I wonder where they took all the sand...
