    Hehe

    I hate how much they jar your car what you hit em'. My daughter thinks that it's the funniest thing when I go over them, but I think they hurt.

    Grrr.

    atlanta is all about some pot-holes. they're absolutely everywhere. they must have used the cheapest paving material ever to build the roads. and when the time comes that they finally decide to "fix" the huge holes in any given road, the whole area is out of commission...

    Who Doesn't

    We all just want to get to our destination safely, our tires gets damaged and it can get us upset. A smooth safe drive is that too much to ask?

    Ugh

    The streets here are absolutely ridiculous. I mean you can't drive a block without hittin at least 4 pot holes every trip. The part that pi$ses me off is that the city is claiming that we're low on funds and so on and so on....but the repairs that are taking place shouldn't be...

    The Snow Killed My Streets

    The streets were already really bad here, but when traffic has to stop on a major road to drive through the pot holes that is bad. I know a few people who got flat tires from them this past week. I find myself driving to work staring down at the street and not what's in front of...

    My City Is Retarded

    This city spends more money on parties, conventions, casinos and sports domes than it does actually repairing potholes.  Not only that but the police are paid less than most in our great country.
