Get San Diego potholes fixed. Here’s what you can do.

Why bother getting potholes fixed? Because they can damage your car, but even worse, they can take a life

In an earlier piece about pothole damages and liability (yes, they can take a life) in which I hopefully gave you some good reasons why you need your city to fix those messy potholes, I skimmed over methods of actually how to report the annoying road hazards.

The fact is, the civic minded citizen is spoiled by an abundant choices of reporting tools. Cities and municipalities have phone lines, fax numbers, online services, and a small handful are creating apps or partnering with third parties to make apps. Not all these tools are easy to use or remember, though, and it’s not likely you have your city’s service request hotline in your address book.

Unfortunately, because reporting the existence of a pothole can be a pain, or just tedious, and since there’s no immediate benefit, we don’t do it. We should though because last year potholes caused over $6.4 billion in damages from causes large and small, and that doesn’t take into account bodily harm.

Sailor Sentenced for Deadly DUI in Oceanside

Another DUI accident in San Diego County claims the lives of two.

11 years. That was the sentenced handed down this week to a Navy sailor who drove drunk, then struck and killed an elderly couple as they took their daily walk.

Earl Decarlos Smith Jr., 21, pleaded guilty in October to gross vehicular manslaughter.

Police say he was driving east on Old Castle Road in Valley Center early in the morning on July 7th when his 2011 Toyota Corolla drifted to the right and struck the couple as they walked with their backs to traffic. Both victims died at the scene.
