Why repair something until it is broken enough to bollix up morning rush hour traffic?

Dysfunctional Government in Inaction
It’s bad enough that in Canton south of Boston Interstate 95 goes through a sharp 25-mile-per-hour curve as it snakes through an enlarged exit ramp meant for the never-built Southwest Expressway some 40 years ago. But our Massachusetts highway department is so slow fixing potholes that this morning one of the 2 lanes on this I-95 choke point was blocked by a State Police car so that drivers would not roll over a huge pothole that had expanded overnight (though that pothole had been a fair-sized hazard for about a week already).
