Show-Me Outrage Against MoDOT

This sentiment is only going to get worse as politicos look to scapegoat the agency and direct attention away from tougher highway funding questions that actually reflect poorly on voters . . . Read more:

What do you expect when you have MoDOT being run by and full of Mizzou engineering school alumni? This is the “university” that came up with roundabouts and diverging Diamond interchanges.

Please hire someone from a heavy winter weather state. North Dakota South Dakota Michigan Minnesota Montana Wyoming. Anyone who's driven the States in winter understand what I am saying. Them boys up there know how to get it done and get it done right. The state of Missouri lacks equipment chemicals and proper training of personnel

You ignorant hillbillies and fragile snowflakes out there have no clue how great MoDOT is during a snowfight. As to the ignorant legislator's driving ability, well, if it is below freezing and there's been precipitation in the past 24 hours, ice forms. If it is in the low 20s or below, salt isn't going to do much good. Be aware and drive with more caution, dumbass!

Must be one of those who voted to reduce spending at MODOT and then has the nerve to complain about the roads. H E L L O this is the midwest and it snows here, and roads become dangerous.

Dude does sound like a whiney non-driving bitch. Had to use the emergency brake on black ice? I'd bet his car has anti-lock brakes which are at least semi effective on ice, much better than pulling the e-brake and having no control at all. Sounds like a pretentious d-bag talking out of his ass. MoDOT, for all their foibles does a remarkably effective job in winter storms. Its tough fighting our weather and the absolute dumbest drivers in the Country all at the same time.

MoDot has always has the equipment just not any real leadership to see it used correctly.
