Drivers in the state that put the world on wheels are flat-out embarrassed by the state of their roads, and some are even scared. Voters will decide May 5 whether to put $1.2 billion more per year toward the roads and bridges in Michigan, which spends less on highway infrastructure, per capita, than any state but Georgia.
