When I moved to NorCal in 2006, I was inline skating on Canada. Today, it seems too rough.
they have replaced a bunch of gas pipelines in that time. Constant construction in PV especially. Whenever they dig they come in and put down blacktop and it'll be smooth for like a week, then cars driving on and the density difference between the new pavement and the old road causes ripples and separations everywhere.

Basically, yeah, you're right.
