Re: winter roads SUCK! piss and moaning (Severance)

I tried to get paid back for two tires and an alignment. All I got was a complete run around. Send a registered letter here, now do this, send this here. It was obvious no matter what I did I was never going to get money unless I got a lawyer.
You can try, good luck.

If they made roads with all concrete and did it the right way, the construction workers would have nothing to do in the summer, and we can't have that. So we'll just keep up the not-so-good work of paying people tax money to do a piss poor job, and on top of that, have to keep buying new rims, or switch to steelies.
Don't you just love america?
My g/f's mom cracked a rim on her oldsmobile and ruined the tire (clean rip across the treads) and got reimbursed for a new tire, a new rim, and all labor. Took a few months and lots of phone calls and bitching, but it worked, somehow.

Re: winter roads SUCK! piss and moaning (VdubInIt96)

Maybe over on the east coast it's different. here in Chicago, there's a "budget to balance" because George Ryan pissed all our money away. They even give tickets in the city for swearing now! I couldn't get money out of the state with a chunk of plutonium and some plastic explosives.
I just avoid the potholes when I can. the worst ones are the ones that fill up with water and look like puddles.
there are also two seasons here: winter, and road construction. If it's warm november thru march, road construction spans the year.
I heard the roads in SD are like glass...

you can take the Twnshp. to court for not keeping up the roads if you have proof it did damage (wich you do). It will take A LONG LONG time but you will eventually get your money. A friend of mine did it around my way but it took him 6 months to get the settlement and another 5 months waiting for the check....

Like that one guy a year or so ago that had to drive home in reverse because it broke and driving any other way would force his wheel to hit the inside of the fender..
That had to suck, imagine, reverse all the way home.
