CA Transportation Systsem 'On Verge Of Collapse'

California's transportation program is in crisis and on the verge of collapse", according to the California Transportation Commission's annual report.

"It's rare that a state agency uses such blunt language, but that's exactly how the California Transportation Commission began its 132-page annual report, released Tuesday.

"The near elimination of the state transportation construction program over the past two years is unprecedented, the result of a basic structural problem in California's system of transportation financing," the report said, referring to Sacramento's habit of borrowing money and raiding gas taxes to pay for education, social programs and other general government operations."
