I am afraid that the Big Sur section of Hwy1 is done for. The state is not going to be able to afford these constant repairs.

Show me where in my post I pay the full bill in April.


You can set however many deductions you want. If you exceed a certain amount owed then you pay interest and a fine. No big deal.
