It's not just communities hurting for investment whose governments should be ashamed for themselves at the waste of taxpayer money on superfluous TIS stations. Here in the affluent Washington DC metro area we have two so-called "highway advisory" stations run by the Montgomery County, Maryland government that have repeated the phrase "when conditions change, this station is updated" more or less non-stop for the past fifteen years. At the same time WTOP, the local powerhouse news outlet now using three full power FM licenses runs live traffic reports every ten minutes all day long. And the Montgomery County stations will never be a DX target, either, given the buzzy, distorted phone patch quality signal they put out.
