    Odot needs to finish the four lane from Carter Co. I see people on that road all the time passing up hills, with cars coming etc.. there's to much traffic. I guess there's not much you can do, alot of good people have been hurt or killed on that road, we should keep more of our tax dollars in the US to fix our roads and infrastructure, our politician send to much of our hard earn tax dollars to foreign countries. Take a look at http://www.heritage.org/Research/features/issues/issuearea/ForeignAid.cfm Its time to keep more of money here to help the US I'm tried of our tax dollars going to people who it will never help.
