Texas highways are a mess and our current administration has not helped make them better.

From Austin to San Antonio it is a death trap. From Houston to Beaumont it is a death trap. We have more truckers on the highways now than ever and I realize a lot of them come from Mexico, but they are here.

Whomever thinks we don’t need the high-speed rail train to Houston and San Antonio has not traveled much lately. And they are out of touch with Texans and what they need!

All they need to do is drive those routes one time and they will realize what is needed. Try them during peak hours.

Politicians: Pay attention!
