With the up and down temps, there are a lot of unavoidable potholes not only in Central Ohio but around the state as a whole. If you were one of the unfortunate ones to get car or tire damage from running into one of the dreaded holes, there is a process to possibly get some help.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains interstates, U.S. Routes and State Routes that are outside municipalities, including Columbus. You can report a pothole in Columbus by calling (614) 645-3111.
According to MyFox28Columbus, you should keep detailed records and be sure to report the damage quickly because the state’s rules for reimbursing pothole damage require drivers to prove their car was busted by a pothole. The driver must also prove the pothole existed at the time they hit it, and finally prove that ODOT did not repair the pothole within a reasonable time frame.
