Potholes are a nuisance in the Grove
I took this picture on Saturday morning, leaving Starbucks, next to Monty's. Look at the size of that thing. It's over a foot wide and quite deep. How many cars were damaged by this? Multi-million dollar condos go up across the street, and this is the scene down on the street below. Makes no sense.
There are too many potholes in Coconut Grove, actually, in the City of Miami. Rather than pave the streets correctly, they put bandaids on the problem, which last about a week. One time I just crossed over from Miracle Mile into Miami on Coral Way and PLOP, I drove right into a pot hole and the tire blew up! That was my welcome to Miami from Coral Gables.
I'm really thinking the City needs to address this problem. They should repay people for all the money they've spent on repairs and replacements. This mess is one of the first things all the regatta people see when they enter the Grove.
There is a 311 Mobile App and you can report the potholes through that, but in most cases it ends up being after you've found yourself in one of the holes.
