Indy Potholes

Potholes and Chuckholes have INVADED Indianapolis. That what it feels like to thousands of Indianapolis residents. On Afternoons with Amos listeners flooded the program with descriptions of areas of the city where potholes and chuckholes have become serious traffic and human safety issues. Scores of locations were given over the air, in e-mails, Twitter and text messages. Listeners expressed their frustration and anger that their taxes don’t seem to be going to repair these problems that cause serious damages to vehicles and hundreds of unplanned dollars spent by taxpayers to repair their vehicles. Below you can hear listeners describe the potholes they encounter on the way to work, school, shopping and their frustration at the failure of government to deal with the problem.
