These potholes are unacceptable
The City of Miami is the only place in the county that I have encountered so many potholes. In the last few years I have had to replace or fix many wheel rims. It's not a cheap proposition. Less than a year ago, I had to replace all four rims on my car because I did such a number on one rim that I couldn't get one replacement, I was forced into purchasing four rims. And one of those new rims was bent out of shape Friday near the Cohen house.
Another time as I left Coral Gables, just as I entered the City of Miami on Coral Way, I hit a pothole and destroyed a rim and tire. The tire just blew up! Something needs to be done.
The joke is that elected officials get elected on their promise to fix potholes. I don't think anyone promises that in Miami, if they do, they don't fix the holes.
I have spent thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements and I am tempted to sue the city, but I'm told I'll get nowhere trying to get reimbursement. I am sure I'm not the only one who has this problem. I am sure some of you have encountered that huge hole in the street on 17th Avenue. For years there were potholes up and down Tigertail until they repaved it.
I'm not sure what is causing the potholes as we don't have the inclement weather like they do up north. I am guessing all the construction equipment and dump trucks are causing this mess. What else can it be? Maybe these developers who are taking over the neighborhood should be made to repair the streets all over the Grove that their trucks and equipment are destroying, not just the few feet they pave that are in front of their projects.
