The population of Midland, Texas is growing and someone is clearly not happy about it.

Motorists driving into the city recently saw the sign above, which was altered to say the population is "too damn many." Midland Public Information Officer Sara Higgins said many residents don't like the recent population boom.

"It's no secret that we're growing and we're growing at high rates. People who have been here, for 5, 10 years or even longer can see a real change," stated HIggins.

An estimated 120,000 people live in Midland. Higgins said they are preparing for more growth in case the population hits 200,000 by 2028.

It's not just traffic klewis. There are no motel rooms for a 150 mile radius. The oilfield workers there are also causing a public nuisance. Ask any female in the area.

I have to drive through Midland/Odessa three to four times a month and let me tell you, TXDOT can't keep I-20 in much more than a barely acceptable level of repair. There is so much traffic out there and most of it is commercial trucks, cranes, semi-trucks and other oilfield and construction equipment. I've got two large cracks in my windshield and across the front of my car, there are so many chips in my paint it's not even funny. If you don't have to go that way, I suggest you stay home!
