Since it seems the city of Davis wants to spend all its money of redoing Fifth Street or privatizing the power or any number of non-critical projects and does not want to keep the infrastructure working (the power is currently working), I’m looking to start a business similar to Zipcar (maybe I can partner with them).
On the outskirts of town I will have stations that will rent 4×4 trucks that can be used to drive on Davis streets. Can’t get to your friends’ house because the road is too torn up? Rent a 4×4 and get there. Based on the city’s track record, I suspect the roads may never be fixed.
