Description

I ran onto this pothole on 2/8/22 around 9:30 pm. I got an immediate flat tire, had to pull over, and in freezing temperatures (around 28 degrees F). All alone, I was struggling to inflate/temporarily fix the tire with “Fix-a-Flat”, which was frozen and wasn’t coming out. I had to leave my car in a nearby parking lot and have my wife drive me home, and had to tow the car the next day to PepBoys. The parking lot I left my car on had a lady waiting to be picked up, also with a blown tire - she presumably ran onto the exact same pothole. My wheel ended up being irreparably warped/bent and tire irreparably blown. The amount of time and money we lost, as well as the emotional and physical toll I endured (I have Raynaud’s syndrome, so I risk having a frostbite with even above-freezing cold temperature) is appalling given the fact that someone already submitted a claim for the exact same pothole 9 months ago! I pay my taxes and expect better than that. I request my expenses to be reimbursed and the pothole fixed immediately.
