  • I crashed into this pothole Sunday night and suffered tyre and wheel damage. I wanted to report but your website said that since the hole has markings, there is nothing to do. I took the picture the next morning to understand what hit me. Your online map shows work symbols, so maybe something is finally happening for this large deep hole that is impossible to see when it's dark.
