Potholes threaten Life/Safety
Motorists dodging potholes are faced with split-second decisions that can result in serious injury and damage to property. For first responders, this problem is expanded geometrically. Police, Fire and Ambulance personnel responding to an incident are placed in additional personal jeopardy performing life-saving tasks both en-route to the scene and to the hospital.
The liability and level of both 911 and 311 calls can be dramatically reduced by employing a solution to permanently repair potholes and reduce the danger.
Here are news stories that illustrate the problem.
