Come to Texas if you want to see some real highways.

European highways remind me of the Pennsylvania Turnpike

And did their subways, rail lines, airports, underground utilities remind you of Texas? How do you like those wooden poles with wires strung all over them across the roads? Gotta love that especially when a hurricane or even a bad thunderstorm knocks out power for extended periods.

Oh and I forgot. That is the perfect American model you mentioned right above. Texas with great highways, in other states, not so much.

No national govt taking care of infrastructure, just 50 sovereign republics handling everything in their state separate from all the others. What a great way to advance a national economy.

It is arrogant.

I never see underground utilities but DFW is pretty nice, most people in Texas prefer travel by car so there isnt much rail lines.

I've traveled by car across this country many times, most highways are pretty nice.

Spring time in the north is pretty bad during spring before they fix all the pot holes.... the northeast is pretty bad in general.
