Infinite Abyss

Welcome to La Jolla, home to champagne riches and caviar dreams, where you can shop for anything from Manolo Blahnik boots to 2009 beemers. Just be sure to stay far away from Via Capri and the “coffin” sized potholes scattered throughout the street because you might break a heel or pop a rim. Jodi Wallace bent the rim on her beemer on her way home one night near the intersection of Via Capri and Rue Michael when she failed to see the crater sized pothole in the road.

When Wallace returned home she sent an email to the city reporting the issue. A few days after, she sent the city a receipt for the cost to replace her rim and tire.

She heard nothing for months and to make matters worse, the pothole on Via Capri was turning into an infinite abyss in front of her very own eyes.

Then, things changed. About three months later, Wallace received a check in the mail from the city reimbursing her for the damages to her car. The city also sent a crew out to repair the street around the same time.

For Wallace, the city should do a whole lot more. Instead of fixing just the one pothole on Via Capri, they need to get some crews out to address all of the streets in La Jolla. “In front of La Jolla Country Day school there are 2 coffin-sized (NO LIE) pot holes that a number of employees at LJCDS have gotten their rims busted on, and it has been close to a year and they are still there. It just irks me to no end when I drive out to Scripps Ranch etc. and see the beautiful streets, and then see the roads here just in an abysmal state.”

If you have “coffin” sized potholes on your street, or if you just need to find the address to send the receipts for car repair from running over them, visit the city’s street division at apps.sandiego.gov/streetdiv/.
