The potholes in Erie are out of control. Some of them are freakin craters. With the biggest motorcycle event 'Roar on the Shore' happening in a few weeks, you would think they might want to fill a couple of those potholes before some motorcycler loses a front tire and gets severely injured.

I see there is plenty of money to tear up all the concrete in Perry Square..

It seems some of Obama's shovel ready jobs take precedent over the others.

Awww dont worry. You see, the mayor wants to borrow millions so we can fix a seasonal problem. Then when next years crop of damaged roads pops up, we still wont have the CASH to pay for repair cuz were paying off 2011's potholes.

And we dont have the CASH to pay for dept. vehicles either, so borrow borrow borrow!

All that nice white concrete and fresh grass to get trampled for the Roar on the Shore. Probably a nice wide path from city hall to Park Place too!

Maybe some of the biker trash can be used aa filler for some of those holes. At least they would be serving a purpose.

If someone really wants to save the government a lot of money i.e. keep taxes low, come up with a permanent solution to the pothole situation.

Can you imagine how much money local, state and the federal government could save if they didn't have to maintain roads? Even if we could cut the cost in half it would be alot.

Oh. Plus you'd be an instant millionare a dozen times over.

This is why I'm leaving Erie I am sick and damn tired of driving into pot holes aka CRATERS. I could never dream of owning a bike and feeling safe with the amount of pot holes around. What makes it worse is you can try and swerve away from one only to land in 3-4 more. You are damned if you do damned if you don't.

I have found writing letters to the city works. Case in point at the corner of 38th/Pine near the Arbys there wasn't a pothole but a stray piece of concrete that looked as if it was from a previous lane divider. Upon driving from Pine making a left hand turn I randomly hit this going the speed limit and it was brutal. I wrote a letter and took pictures...it's gone now. It took them a month, but it's gone. Maybe if everyone started reporting more and more potholes the problem would go away...slowly.

The city should have a message board/forum/phone app of some sort to report these things.

I really should be worrying about pot holes on the left coast but I am still fixated on the hometown I was run out of.

You have never got it right dingbat. Refute the man's points instead of acting like a complete a-hole all the time.

it's hard when he continues with the same facts over and over. He cannot even refute his own points. Question him, you will not give a solution, only more crazy figures. More name calling. Pigs, thugs, losers.

he controls you tooooo :)

You mean, It's hard when you don't know what you're talking about most of the time?
