Skip to comments.Is it fair to cite drivers on Pockmark Pathway?

Even before resident Allen Moe got socked with a ticket for trying to avoid hitting potholes, I had already renamed a badly pockmarked section of Shannon Parkway in Rosemount "Moon Crater Boulevard."
Now, I'm sure many Twin Cities motorists have done similar nomenclature revisions, given the plethora of potholes from this past winter of woe. I hear Wheelock Parkway in St. Paul is now called Wheeloff Parkway. A motorist was seriously injured recently when his airbags deployed after he inadvertently hit a large pothole. Auto shops are overbooked with suspension, tire and alignment repairs.
So I was taken aback by news that Moe, a public school social worker with two young daughters, was cited over the weekend by a cop for something that I and even that city's mayor have done while driving over Potholecalypse Road -- another moniker of mine.
The cop tagged Moe on Saturday morning for not staying in his lane as he drove south on Shannon Parkway between Dearborn Path and 145th Street West en route to his 11-year-old daughter's dance classes. The fine -- 128 smackeroos

Not a jury in the world would convict.
Respect my authoritah
Our rulers always give us a choice. Accept a $128 fine or pay $1500 to get your front end rebuilt.
option 3 was not available as his dog was left at home.
Can we cite parkers on the Driveway as well?
Good thing that cop is on the south end of the cities.. I saw the video.. We’d kill to have a road in that good of condition up here on the north end of the cities..
The county came by with a load of patch a few days ago.. Only made it .25 miles down Lexington before they ran out.. Have not been back since.. I wonder if they reported to the higher ups that the road needed to be replaced.
from broadway to viking blvd around the east side of coon lake.
my wife was joking the other day they only fix the corners..
It’s all his fault. If he didn’t own and drive a automobile fueled by the life blood of out mother the Earth making Big Oil (Dick Cheney) richer, this would not have happened. He should walk or bicycle or avail himself of our fine public transportation system..(Toot Toot).
