damageddude: Bennie Crabtree: Why do we never hear suggestions to sue the private companies that built the roads, for using shoddy pavement and other materials, and for shortchanging the public by forcing them to pay for maintenance more often?The roads were made shoddy because that is what the governments at the time wanted. Shoddy roads equal cheaper to build roads. Roads that will last a few decades without requiring work cost more money to build. By time the cheaply built roads need to be upgraded, say a decade later, the politicians will be long gone and it will be somebody else's problem.
