Many third world countries would be ashamed of the condition of paving in Alexandria. That said, it is astounding that the city is wasting money and time doing cosmetic renovation of many street corners in the city. Doing this cosmetic (traffic calming?) alteration takes away parking spaces and, in some cases, right turn lanes. Some of the calming cosmetics are being done on blocks which have four way stops at each block. Might there perhaps be a better way to spend this money?
