If you live in New York State, you know all about potholes we get right after the snow melts but a lot of people don't know that you can't get compensated for pothole damage.

So here's the news In order to get paid from pothole damage: You Must:

1) make sure that the pothole had been reported to the county. Dial 311

2) The pothole must actually be on a county road, not a city or state road

3) The county has a “reasonable” amount of time to fill that hole -- this reasonable amount of time can vary based on weather conditions, other crew obligations and duties, weather, etc

4) The freeze/thaw cycle works against repair crews at times who are working to take care of the road damage.

Basically saying we aint gonna pay for damages because it was too cold Buffalo For ya!
