On The Wrong Road

California has eye-wateringly high taxes. In particular, it has the highest tax rate amongst U.S. states on diesel fuel and the second highest rate on gasoline (after Pennsylvania). This money is supposed to go to support transportation. But it has the second worst roads in the U.S., beaten only by tiny Rhode Island. On the other hand, every CHP officer retires as, in effect, a multi-millionaire so there’s that.
