Damned loose gravel!

Recommended Posts

So I'm merrily tooling north on Eastern today, when before me I see huge patches of loose gravel on the road. (Hall/Franklin, thereabouts.) Loose gravel is scooter hell. Bambi on the ice.

When this city does street repair, they seem to use one of three things:

1. Tar/asphalt you know, the hard stuff that's correctly used to fix roads.

2. The wet coffee grounds-looking stuff. Ridiculous.

3. F***kin LOOSE GRAVEL. Why not just pour ball bearings on the road; it would have the same effect!

Oh, I'm mad. To which official entity can I complain about this?

It's chip & seal, the favorite repair method in remote counties and townships. Car traffic eventually melds it into something smooth resembling asphalt. Meanwhile, us two-wheelers hold on for dear life.

And it's all along Fulton (doesn't stay in place on Lake Drive).
