Personnel from the Department of Transportation spent a great deal of time recently repairing some of the many potholes that have cropped up in New York City. DOT officials said the agency has been able to repair at least 1,100 potholes along the two-mile stretch of the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn as of Thursday, February 6.
Robert Sinclair with AAA New York said that the number of potholes in roads in New York this year, which is considered to be due in part to the drastic changes of temperature in the Tri-state area, has been a real burden to motorists, who have had to pull over several times to change their tires.
The DOT has already has already filled more than 60,000 potholes all over the city since starting in January.
