Both Whiting and Hammond mayors should be ashamed to let Indianapolis and Calumet get in the condition they are in. The holes are no longer potholes, they are tank traps. If you hit one, you will cause damage to your vehicle.

To avoid these deep holes you have to drive in other lanes. It's very dangerous.

Instead of U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky wanting money for the South Shore extension, he should be asking for repairs of our roads.
