To the Department of Public Works of [town, city, municipality],
As a resident of [town, city, municipality], I urge you to address the pothole problem on/at [location]. The pothole on/at [location] is a hazard to motorists and needs immediate attention.
I strongly recommend you contact VIBCO Vibrators about their GR-1600 Pothole Patcher for fixing [location]'s potholes. Terrible road conditions like those in [location] cost U.S. motorists $67 billion per year in additional repairs and operating costs - or an average of $335 per driver.
Needless to say, potholes are a serious problem. Each time a car, truck, bicycle or motorcycle passes through [location], the motorist is risking damage to vehicle and person.
Also, it might interest you to know that in the United States:
- Pothole damages cost drivers $6.4 billion a year according to a 2014 AAA report
- Over the lifespan of a car, drivers can pay up to $2,000 or more in repair costs due to damages from poor road conditions
- According to the Federal Highway Administration's 2001-2002 report, "the cost of repairing a pothole with a 'throw and go method' would be approximately $62 per pothole and the semi-permanent would cost $20 to repair."
As you can see, potholes are no small issue - nationally and locally. Please make the time needed to repair the pothole situation on/at [location].
Thank you for your time,
