Georgia has (in my opinion) the best roads I have ever seen; and this is surprising considering that Georgia taxes gas the least of any state. How is this possible? My guess would be the lack of trade unions down here as opposed to the north. Illinois needs to copy the Georgia model for building and maintaining roads. Illinois has the highest state gas tax in the country, and in 2007 its roads were ranked 49th (behind Luisiana) in road quality. I-75 through Atlanta is an incredible drive at night; especially around midnight when there is no traffic.

I'm driving back to my home in Illinois for the summer, as I have for the past four years, and I always look foward to making that night trip through Atlanta. Just wanted to pay a complement to your beautiful, smooth, hilly roadway system in the Atlanta area. Thanks!
