There are many forms of madness in March. There's one for basketball fans..and there's the madness you get when your car hits a pothole and wrecks a tire or your wheel alignment. That's why MoDOT has begun a pothole repair initiative across Missouri. MoDOT's Dave Mitchell tells News Talk KZRG about that program.
"What we're trying to do is to get on them as quickly as we can and within 24 hours after they're reported to us, we're trying to get them filled. So that the next time the person who reported that travels that road, hopefully that pothole has been repaired and they'll notice a smoother ride."
If you spot a pothole, call MoDOT toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT. Or put it on MoDOT.Southwest on Facebook.
