Have you traveled on Indianapolis Boulevard in Robertsdale lately or even the 1500 block of Lake Avenue? Let me give you some advice. If you have a back condition, don't.

If you have good tires on your car, very soon you will need new tires. The two roads mentioned are in a very deplorable state, very rough, bumpy and full of holes. If you hit one of these holes your car will need a front end alignment or a new tire.

Why aren't these roads being repaired? In time, because of the increased traffic, the roads will only get worse.
