Pot holes in Tallahassee

Friday, November 19, 2010; 8 PM

Over the last several years the road maintenance in the city of Tallahassee been going from good to bad. One of the problems is the difficult economic situation cities, counties, and states are facing. For example, during the early 2000s several new roads were paved, additional lanes were laid, and regular repairs were done routinely.

But during the last two years even well traveled roads in the Tallahassee started to show pot holes and they are getting bad to worse. My commute to work which is less than 10 miles has probably dozen pot holes, cracked man hole covers, uneven lanes and other problems.

I encountered one pot hole this evening that was big enough to give lots of problems. It was unavoidable as it was so close to the road and there were two one after another.

Hope the situation soon will improve and the money city spends on roads will help reduce money individuals spend on autos and bikes.
