        I don't mind the Rain, but the poor state of the roads around town are a problem waiting to happen. But of course the solution for Portland was to lower the speed limit everywhere to 20.

        Not really, but this city hates cars so much, I'm sure they were stroking themselves over the State supreme court authorizing them to go BELOW the state minimum for speeds.

        Only in Portlandia.

        I'm sure the 60 minutes episode Sunday about this Hipster fail will be amazing. As one comment I read stated - "Portland has finally jumped the shark.."

          I've travelled and driven in multiple third world countries with better roads than Portland & Seattle. The infrastruce here is abysmal. Seattle is really trying to kill the car with these taxes and registration fees. I paid $350 to renew my tabs on my wifes 2016 VW Golf for 12 months.

            Seriously. Shit is fuqqqqed up in every kind of way. I get that the extra taxing is supposed to implement better public transportation, but when im paying $198 for tabs on a 97' 4runner, you know something is wrong.

              It shouldn't be a surprise for anyone, they assfucked everybody with the initial light rail build. That was more strategic though, they passed ST1 which taxed everyone with an address that was within a certain radius of the line, so for a few years there my in-laws were paying 6-800 per vehicle to register even though they're more than 5 miles from a stop because the line goes through their back yard.

              Shit's fucked.

                or like in california, they wanted high speed light rail, built all this shit for it, and now are not doing it....because well people are refusing to move and give up land lol

                People so badly on this coast want it to be like the UK, france, germany, etc where we all ride trains around and nobody has cars. I have multiple customers that ride trains in those countries and its only because parking is 20$ a day in cities like london, and gas is 20$ a gallon in some areas.... fml

                  I don't necessarily disagree with the movement to add public transportation options that don't use the roads but the insane cost of construction and land these days is making it extremely difficult to make that happen. Europe has/had the advantage of having a comprehensive rail system that was built before cities really starting getting dense, so they really just need to maintain/upgrade existing rails.

                          Those fuckwits also don't realize that we are a lot more spread out here, than in europe, and rail transport doesn't work as well here. I lived there for 3 years, and we did ride trains everywhere long distance, but short trips, we still drove. When I was in Germany, Gas was about $5 to $6 a gallon on post, More if you had to buy it off post. Needless to say, If we did have to drive long distances, we tried to plan the trip around access to military bases.

                          I am a train guy also, I love trains, and I'd love to have the same setup here like they have there, It just wont work though. We MIGHT have had a chance to have something worth while if the Railroads and government would have had a little bit of foresight, and didn't sell off right of ways, and rail lines when they closed. Or turn the fucking things into trails.
