Road in need of repair

Dear Editor:

On county Highway 26, two miles from county Highway 70 there is a dangerous sunken area across the road. This Thursday, I was meeting a loaded truck when he hit that area of the road. He momentarily lost control and veered into the other lane, almost causing a head-on collision. How long does it take officials to see this kind of condition of our roads and repair them? Or does someone have to get killed before there is action taken?
