Channel 8: Pot holes in city streets cause traffic hazards


Channel 8 News reporter Molly Hackett went out into the streets to see what Manhattan residents think about the current road conditions and how it poses a threat to those on their commutes. In an interview with city street superintendent Jeff Davis, he says the city plans to work on patching the holes but residents won’t see much change until school is out and the roads are clear in the summer.
