    Numerous times I’ve seen farmers transporting corn, beans, or what have you and the roads that are blacktop cracking and concaving behind the wheels of over loaded grain buggies , grain haulers, and even cattle haulers do they just not care ? same thing on cemented roads cracking distortion not to mention the mud , dirt, dust, and uncurtious driving as if they own the roadways, and not to mention the gravel roads they all show sighns of more wear and tear after harvest season then the whole rest of the year . Check it out I hope they pay there fair share because they are the ones that ruin them the most. don’t think im exaggerating on this matter.
