Potholes, street damage follow snow storm
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Potholes and road damage are waiting for many motorists now that the snow is cleared from most streets.
Between plows and salt trucks doing their job and the temperatures going up and down, you should start bracing for the worst.
Department of Transportation crews rushed to plug holes on the BQE on Monday afternoon.
With snow plows and salt trucks beating up on the roads after the storm and Mother Nature tossing in a freeze thaw cycle, our tires and suspensions are being put to the test.
Angela Coggins has done her share of driving since the storm and she says she has run into plenty of beat up roads.
We found streets on the Upper East Side that had been recently paved ripped open and a side street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn that was not a friend to cars.
"It reminds me of a road that was paved once in Vietnam when French where there. Now it looks like Third World New York," Matthew Neel said.
But for the most part, we found roads to be in pretty good shape after a holiday storm pounded us. However, many New York drivers also know, the worst may be still to come.
