Brian writes in with his own hellish nightmare after hitting a pothole on a Tucson-area street.

He writes:

"My experience starts 4 months ago when I couldn’t avoid a large pothole on silverbell road in my small Honda CRX.  It blew out the right front tire, almost causing an accident in itself. It has taken me 3 months to save money for new tires. Now that they are on, the car is wandering with severe overstear.  Not safe for me to drive, and I certainly cannot afford to take it into a shop.  It is still sitting because of a large pothole. Words cannot describe the severe hardship this has cost me and my family."
