NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)- A pothole in Gentilly Terrace has folks spirits deflated.

They have come to expect bad roads because, "This is New Orleans."

We pay taxes! We deserve to drive in our neighborhoods and not worry about popping a tire, or breaking an axle!

We also deserve to have these public nuisances fixed in a timely manner.

Some potholes have been around for more than ten years. That's absurd!

The pothole at Treasure Street and Spain Street is in pretty bad shape and quite dangerous if you don't know it is there.
