I use I71 daily traveling 55 miles south and back 55 miles north 5-6 days a week from Sparta to Gene Snyder. Several things can be done to better I71. Do something about the I71 South and Gene Snyder On/Off ramp, how many accidents and lifes have to be lost before somethings done! The Truckers that travel I71 both North and South bound drive like they own the road, pulling out in front of you without warning, driving in both slow and fast lanes at what ever speeds they want. And fix the Holes on I71 North bound of the Silgo exit, and I don't just mean patching it (if that's what you call it).
