Potholes Popping Up In SF

February 19, 2014, 5:53 PM by Matt Holsen

Potholes Popping Up In SF

Thanks to the bitter cold and snowfall, potholes are popping up across town and they aren't going away quickly. Officials say this has been one of the worst winters for roads.

While the recent cold snap and warm up creates potholes, snowfall and wet roads make them hard to fix. Driver Andrew Mahoney says if you're not careful, potholes can really shake things up.

"Yeah, I've seen a few cones around some of the bigger potholes like on Western Avenue. I think it's the railroad tracks, it's kind of sunk in. Before, I've hit that a few times and it rattled my car quite a bit. Just be alert and avoid them as much as I can I suppose," Mahoney said.

Most people who hit potholes are going to feel it later. We caught up with one guy who doesn't have that problem. Jeremy Storm drives a Jeep fitted with some pretty big tires. He has the luxury of not having to avoid the street obstacles.

"They don't really affect me. It'd have to be a pretty big one for me to miss it," Storm said.

For the rest of us, missing potholes or bad seams in the road is necessary to avoid a future trip to the repair shop.

"I have to get my car re-aligned and break the tire rod and other things. It's about a yearly thing, get the car looked at," Mahoney said. "It's been a long winter."

Crews will be busy patching streets for weeks to come. If you'd like to report a pothole, you can call 1-605-367-8002.
