I just put two claims in to Caltrans for two blowouts due to potholes. The total is just under $1,000. I don’t think I worded any of it politely.
That, there, was the most polite part of it -- be glad I’m not sending you claim for $1250 for just the one incident.
I’ll be happy if they send me a check. I’ll be happier if they don’t as negligence equals reckless endangerment in my head and I’ll take them to the fucking cleaners if there’s even a whiff of hesitation.
Fix your shit, Caltrans.
