Chris Hoover was so fed up with the potholes in city streets that he recently sent us his "Potholes: Enough Is Enough" proclamation. And plenty of people who read it are now ready to sign on to Hoover's cause. Says Jeff:
Excellent bit from the guy who contributed and he is dead on. I've been here in Denver since 1973 and I have never seen the roads this bad. What the hell is happening with our tax dollars and why can't the state get this done? I drive most of the day on city streets and there are a lot of dangerous potholes. How about using some of the pot tax money? Very frustrating.
Try driving down Dahlia from Montview to 26th. It's like a jeep trail. They ripped up the street and did a terrible job patching. And now there's a ton of potholes. Their answer? Fill them with loose asphalt
