Dear Department Manager
I am writing to you concerning what could be a dangerous situation at the intersection of Third Road and Main Street. Because of the early winter thaw, and the rainy weather lately, there has developed a pothole in the northeast corner of the intersection. This problem started as a small group of potholes I believe, which have since merged together into a gap which grows daily. The hole is now roughly five feet wide and getting large enough to swallow the rear of an entire car.
Vehicles, including trucks and school busses, are attempting to avoid this hole by veering into the opposite lane, which is into oncoming traffic. Since this intersection is controlled by a traffic signal, this has become a problem which has needed police presence to avoid accidents. Pedestrians have stopped crossing at the intersection and are now attempting to cross from between parked cars.
Please place this intersection on your list of priorities as soon as possible.
