    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Per CBS-11 TV 0601 05-05-2008

TXDOT has completed repairs on WB IH-30 over Beckly Ave. However TXDOT spokesmen say the road will not be fully opened untill later this afternoon. ONE lane is getting through at this time. Back-up goes well beyond DT Dallas.

The hole was actually about 2' dia. and did dammage some vehicles last night prompting Dallas Fire & Rescue being called to the scene. TXDOT not saying the reason for the bridge to break, possibly due to the rain this spring.
