Skip to comments.Domino's Is Fixing America's Crappy Roads For Pizza Safety And That's Pretty Embarrassing

This feels like something from a William Gibson cyberpunk dystopia novel, where the government has become so weak and useless, private corporations have been taking over the basic upkeep of the nation. But its not a William Gibson novel, theres no plucky protagonist with some sort of cybernetic implant, its just America in 2018, with crumbling roads that Dominos has decided to fix. For the sake of the pizzas.
Dominos is tired of their innocent pizzas, who only wish to serve humankind, being beaten all to hell by poorly-maintained roads. They even have a website that shows, in graphic, pizza-box-cam detail, what brutal hell pizzas are put through when their delivery vehicle impacts a pothole.

Good thing they aren't improving roads in Haiti if you catch my drift.
It’s embarrassing because they are doing it much faster and cheaper than our dear “public servants” are capable of doing it.
California’s spending all of its money on Moonbeam’s magical choo choo train to nowhere...
Good for Domino’s. I wish more companies would do this.
How long do you think the government will allow it?
score a point for the libertarians and ancaps
Crazy...$10 million worth of free PR kind of crazy.
Why is it that Democrat states always have the highest taxes, along with the worst roads?
Totally embarrassing to me. We paid for shovel ready jobs and the Keyenan must have shoved it up his nose. Ill never sleep tonite. Dont like the road drive slower and pray to Barry.
I bet the unions will put a stop to it pretty quick. They’ve got to justify their public union jobs, after all.
Pray to Barry. You dont want to grab that shovel.
My next pizza will be a Dominos...
150 pot holes in Athens, Ga. Athens used to do the old hot tar/ gravel two step with pot holes. They did not bother to steam roll the add mixture. In other words they did not bother to press the hot tar gravel mixture down into the hole. The pictures show a steam roller compacting the repair work. It is nice to see Dominoes using the proper equipment.
The Jerry Browns Legacy: A $6.1 Billion Budget Surplus in California. Yet they DON’T FIX THE ROADS. The roads are a TOTAL MESS IN BROWNIFORNIA. KICK THE DAMM DEMOCRATS OUT OF OFFICE!
Founder was an ardent pro-life activist BTW.
Good. And their pizzas taste a lot better than Pizza Hut, which once was the leading company in northern Virginia.
Their slogan should be “We deliver: Better roads; Better pizzas”.
Democrats are about growing the public unions with do-nothing jobs. Each union member forks over their union dues which winds up in the political war chests of Democrat representatives. This campaign money ultimately goes into back pockets after a money laundering process. Back pockets are the only pot holes these criminals are interested in filling.
I must say that I have worked for almost 40 years as an institutional equities trader in LA. I’m retired recently but I used to talk to NY all day long .... and I have entertained visitors from NYC for many years.
Almost everyone from NYC talks about how great California roads are ... and they are good. Every once in awhile there might be a pot hole ... but a call to CalTrans means it will be repaired .... sometimes in 24 hours.
The roads are great ... but we do have a problem with the sidewalks that NEVER seem to get repaired. Tree roots burst through the sidewalk and distort the ability to walk safely.
But roads ... fine.

I live in one of the Reddest Counties in TX. My city should be renamed pothole capital of Texas. I try to remember where they are, but hit one two weeks ago by our Post Office. Bam, I had to spend nearly a thousand dollars for repairs to my car.
I saw some creative folks putting up little soccer cones one night, and pouring a concrete mixture to do a covert repair job near their house.
I would welcome Domino’s fixing our Potholes. Our local Politicians have never seemed that interested in the plethora of potholes.
