I Am Disabled and Hit a Pothole

Pothole: La Brea & Pico, Los Angeles, Calif. 90019

First I thought only the tire was blown, though it became apparent quickly that my headlights, rear lights, alignment were effected — it was a huge jar to hit —

Please say there’s some help — does the city help for real or is it just a waste of times?

Thank you for your help — I realize you get so many complaints. Thank you for your service to Los Angeles.

Teeth-Rattling Potholes in Hollywood

On December 28, 2010 I went through this gorgeous pair of potholes at the corner of Carmen and Gower in Hollywood. After my teeth nearly rattled out of my head I heard a hiss, and didn’t make it to the end of the block. These photos were taken two days later, after some good Samaritan put up a road cone. Thanks a lot.


Last time I checked, the pothole was still there (with no road cone).

Thanks to Pep Boys on Hollywood Blvd for giving me a good price on a new tire.

Update April 5: I drove by that intersection last night and the potholes are gone! The whole street has been repaved.
