KPCC infrastructure reporter Sharon McNary recently went out to see potholes being filled in downtown Los Angeles.

The poor condition of Los Angeles roads adds more than $1,000 to drivers’ annual vehicle operating expense.

The road crew made quick work of it, but what happens when a reporter isn’t watching?

What’s your experience reporting potholes?

Sharon wants to know what happens when you report a pothole. How quickly does it get filled?

You can report your L.A. city pothole by dialing 311. 

You can report it online or download the city’s service request app to your phone.

Then, tell Sharon how the city responded.
