HOUSTON, Texas – The Medical Center isn’t immune to road problems, and this one is a doozy. Today’s “Pothole Of The Day” is located on Cambridge Street near Old Spanish Trail.
“I’ve seen somebody actually hit it so viciously, it ripped part of the front of their bumper off the front of their car,” said Kevin Callahan.
This crater isn’t new to the area and seems to only be getting worse with age.
“A few weeks ago the city came by and had one of the automated gravel, tar machines and a guy spent about all of ten seconds. Put about a half an inch of material in it and drove off.”
Residents of the area are familiar with this cavity and know to avoid it, but some drivers are still surprised by the hurdle.
Callahan recalled what happened when he drove through it, “Usually it’s me screaming as my boiling hot coffee pours all over my lap.”
And here it is once more time.
“Please fix this, that’s what all the sales tax is for and our money. Utilize it properly.” begged Callahan.
