Pothole patrol

Drivers beware: There’s a pothole out there just waiting for the chance to destroy a tire, break or suspension or — at the very least — knock your front end out of line.

The winter of extremes left us with a plethora of potholes: Some large enough to qualify for statehood or their own zip code.

If you find a pothole (and finding one ain’t all that hard), go online and report the monster to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

Don’t be alarmed if it takes a while.  VDOT is stretched to the limit and beyond but the sooner you get the pothole in the system the sooner it will get filled. The agency filled 43,000 potholes in a recent two-week blitz.

A special note to fellow motorcyclists: Be careful out there. There are too many potholes that can bring down an unwary rider.

  1. If you don’t like the state of Virginia’s roads, you REALLY are not going to be happy with the state of the pavement in Washington DC. Two destroyed tires, busted suspension, four cupped tires and $1,500 in repairs later the roads still look like rural Mexico. In fact I recommend that everyone avoid the place like the plague – the only public servants working the streets are the meter maids.
