More people want money from Ottawa City Hall as compensation for their dinged-up vehicles.
The number of pothole-related vehicle damage claims received by the city has increased by 411 so far in 2017 compared to 2016, according to the city.
The statistics are in a written response published Wednesday as part of a transportation committee agenda. Coun. Diane Deans asked the city solicitor’s office about the claims in light of the harsh winter at the beginning of the year.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/pothole-claims-spike-in-2017-as-ottawa-roads-batter-vehicles
