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.

Painful potholes – San Diego beware

You may think potholes are insignificant. But a small hole can put a deep cut into your pocketbook – and even take a life!

Who would’ve thought that a little hole in the ground could cause so much harm. Safety researchers are estimating that potholes will cause roughly $6.4 billion in damages to cars this year. That’s a lot of cash!

Most pothole damage goes to tires and shock absorbers, but everything from brakes to steering and even your engine can be damaged. Repairs start at $50 but go way up if your engine is involved, and can be a nasty surprise if they go unnoticed until a routine service check.

Consequently, it might be time for you to take a fresh look at potholes. They are not just the little bump in the road you thought they were.
