Drivers Tired Of Bumpy Roads Call ‘Operation Pothole’ Long Overdue
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Commuters should have a smoother ride to work Monday thanks to “Operation Pothole”, a city initiative that had crews filling tens of thousands of potholes this weekend.
Residents say it’s about time.
“I’ve had two instances where I’ve hit potholes and my hubcaps, as you can see on this side of the car, have flown off,” said Jennifer Pollie, who lives on a street in the Fairfax district where there’s about a dozen potholes.
The city of Los Angeles is spending $300,000, funded through the gas tax, for 300 workers to patch up all the rough spots over the next fiscal year.
Operation Pothole was launched in mid-May and officials say residents to report potholes in their area by calling “311″.
