The report doesn't mention the expense of security guards, security cameras, security bars on windows, soft body armor, armored-up family car, heavy duty tires that need to be replaced monthly because of the pot-holes...

Heavy duty tires is the only item on your list that's actually needed.

Maybe a beefed up suspension system...

Was recently in Ohio, their roads are almost as bad.

Are you from Jackson? I suspect you are not. None of these are required to be in Jackson.

I am neither black nor white but drove around in Jackson more than a decade and know most of those streets like the back of my hand. At no time I required whatever your mentioned above or any thing close to it. Occasionally people approach me for money, too close, that scared me a bit but they understand and move on (yes move on) if I smile and tell the truth (that I carry plastic) or give them some cash if I have.
A few times (when it was too cold or too hot I gave them ride too. I had no issues. People are friendly.
My take on this Jack city situation: Its what people do if there is no fitting jobs creation "within their vicinity"?

I do agree with those heavy duty tires and shock absorbs. You need those. Thanks to the condition roads and whatever reasons behind that situation.

Regarding the original news in CL: It could be that city leaders are doing something up there (other than fixing roads) that is working (or appears to be working.) If that is true keep up that good work.

No, but us country folk up here in Madison like to poke fun at you Jacktown dwellers. Anyway, have you driven around the west side lately? You know, hung out near the zoo, or do you limit your travel to the Fondren/Belhaven areas for safety?


Asking for a friend.

Asking for a friend.
Northside, Woodrow Wilson, State street, HangingMoss/West, Bailey/Gallatin etc I drive around in general.
Hmm... Ellis avenue, I did not drive around recently, past one year. No particular reason. I like to drive around town for fun to see people walking around or to notice how demographics are changing/improving. I like that. I drove around Fondren enough times in the past and no longer get that "kick" any more.

I will make it a point to drive on Ellis next time

Lol .. You must drive a company vehicle or an old vehicle that you don't care about to be willing to ride around those areas for fun.. Tires & rims / balancing / alignments way too expensive for me.
