HOUSTON, Tx. --Today's pothole actually gets a name:  "Destructor." Located on the corner of Westpark Drive and Rogerdale Road in southwest Houston, it's waiting to chow down on your tires.

Chris Volcy in soutwest Houston described his experience with the city's potholes, "It feels like the whole car is going to come apart."

This chasm has already claimed at least two tires that we know of. In fact one happened right in front of our camera.

"And then you bust your tires and crack your rims and it costs you money." added Volcy.

Drivers who know about it, do their best to avoid it, but for many, it's an unpleasant surprise. The sharp edge seems to just prey on wheels as they ram through it.

The message from drivers is quite simple. "Please fix these streets right away!" said Volcy.

Many drivers don't know what hit them when they run across the "Destructor," but don't say we didn't warn you about this intersection, it can be a shocker!!
