The pothole predicament - who to call to report it?

The potholes are especially problematic this year after our bursts of extreme winter weather. So, when you experience a really big pothole - who do you call? Macomb Co. Executive, Mark Hackel, has encouraged people to call 911 when they experience damage-causing potholes. Yet Michigan State Police discourages tying up 911 lines to report potholes.

On the panel:

Mark Hackel, Macomb County Executive
Robert Ficano, Wayne County Executive

FOX 2 legal analyst Charlie Langton

You can also report potholes on routes beginning with an "I", "US-" or "M-" directly to MDOT. Call (888)296-4546 or log onto www.Michigan.gov/mdot.
