From the NY Post:
The city's pothole program has hit a bump.
The time it takes to fix the pesky problem has doubled, rising to nearly six days, according to city data released Friday for July through October.
The Department of Transportation blames the slower response on a spike in overall pothole complaints because of harsh weather. The agency repaired 150,000 potholes in the summer and fall, a 15% increase from the same time last year.
What harsh weather are they talking about? Seriously... Was last winter any worse than previous ones? The winters have been getting progressively milder.
I blame this on the lack of interest by the DOT commissioner who spends all her time devising plans for bike racks and sitting areas and little to none on fixing roads or untying traffic. In fact, she just greenlighted the Van Wyck ramps that will turn the entire borough into a giant clusterfuck because Bloomberg told her to. But that's a subject for another post.
