Many people around here complain about the condition of roads.  Honestly, I don't get it.  Roads around here are certainly not as bad as what you'd find near Detroit.

Alas, the Michigan DOT released their "2012 Transparency Report" outlining the most needed safety improvements on Michigan roads.  Ten of those are in the Grand Rapids metro area. See if you agree!
