First, let me say I am sorry about the Oklahoma roads. We were amazed how bad they are when we first moved here.

Part of the problem is that ODOT receives less than 1% of the tag fees. About 16% goes to towns and counties for their roads. And approximately 43% goes to the General Fund, part of which funds roads (anybody's guess is to how much). Almost 41% of our tag fees are directed specifically to non-highway uses. Insane.

Read about it here.

And who knows how much of the less than 1%, the 16%, and road's portion of the 43% actually goes to the roads?

I believe this was the tip of the iceberg.
