We reported this morning about another issue related to gas drilling: the damage caused by the fleets of heavy trucks required for drilling, fracing and other operations. Fort Worth has not been collecting money from gas companies to pay for damage to local roads because the Transportation Department doesn't think it can prove that specific road problems were caused by gas drilling. But it's routine for outlying counties to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars after documenting the damage.
Reader Dan O'Leary is hopping mad, and has sent numerous pictures showing the problems on his street.
Are any of y'all seeing similar problems?
