How bad are L.A.'s roads? Pretty bad. A new report says potholes and other hazards add more than $1,000 to the annual expense of operating the average vehicle.
KPCC infrastructure reporter Sharon McNary recently went out to see potholes being filled at 8th and Bixel at an entrance to the 110 downtown.
The road crew made quick work of it, and she met a homeless man named Anthony - and his cat Thanksgiving - who sees hundreds of suspension meeting their demise every day.
