How often do you hit a major pothole? The following was posted in the New Bedford Political Group on Facebook:

“This pothole was reported a week ago. Took out two tires yesterday on Peckham St. Off Acushnet Ave. hopefully my rims and suspension ok. No car all weekend. Reported to the city and find out 3 other cars damaged yesterday after mine. One with front end damage. I’m a homeowner without a lot of reserves and use my car for work. I hope the city makes good when I send the bill in. It was unavoidable with oncoming traffic and deceptive in depth.” – Gina Andrade

You can report potholes to the City of New Bedford here.
