The number of claims to the City of Ottawa over damage to cars due to potholes has almost quadrupled in two years.

In 2015, 225 claims were made, while 480 claims were made in 2016.

But so far in 2017, that number has soared to 891, according to a staff brief written in response to an inquiry from Coun. Diane Deans.
