We wrote last week about pesky potholes and asked readers for their personal pothole frustrations:

Mike W.: I had a problematic pothole on my street in Newark and it was getting worse pretty quickly.

  • Since a picture is worth a thousand words, and I don't have time to write a thousand different words, I sent the above picture to the street department.
  • The pothole was fixed within two days. To thank them for responding so quickly, I sent them the second photo.

Holly A.: Thanks for this great article on potholes! I drive on Fifth Avenue between Neil and Grandview Avenues almost everyday, and the potholes are too numerous to call out individually.

  • There has been some repair work done — but some of the repair jobs are very much in disrepair! Help!!

Our pro tip: Columbus residents can report potholes on the city's 311 system.
