Pothole Problems

Just when we thought we were out of the woods on the roads ... Another problem for drivers.

Potholes are popping up all over town, and drivers don’t like them.

There's not much to like. As soon as the snow stops the potholes show up. Everywhere.

It's so bad police even try block drivers from the worst of them. But the hits keep coming, and if cars could speak, they might just say “ouch.”

"It actually took out the center hub and damaged the wheel," explains Big O Tire manager Dewayne Comer.

Comer's collection of pothole ruined wheels is piling up, and in just the past two days, so is business.

"We do enjoy it, but customers aren't enjoying buying wheels and tires right now," said Comer.

Some drivers are sneaking by and waiting for some help. It is coming from state and city crews, one shovel of filler at a time. It is a temporary fix for what drivers know is a re-curring problem.

And until the repairs can catch up with the damage, most will just grimace and bear it.
