Holey unacceptable roads

Port Hardy scooter user finds potholes challenging.

Dear editor,

The District of Port Hardy must do something about the condition of the streets in town.

I ride a scooter to get around town, and, with my legs, it’s hard to move when it regularly gets stuck in the deep holes along the edge of the pavement.

My left arm was already broken, and I almost overturned on my right last week at the intersection of Granville and Rupert when I had to move over to avoid a car and drove into a hole in the broken pavement.

It’s not only me; some day a kid might be riding a bike there and get killed.

The District is supposed to take care of that. We pay the taxes, they can take care of it for us.
