LOL We are just as bad here in Taxachusetts....so don't feel so bad!

Now you can't go after the city, can you? It'* one of those, "You use the road at your own risk..." things right?

Man sucks to hear about your car....
Can you try to get the money for repair from the city?

I know up here if your car is damaged due to a pothole or something that the city is responsible for taking care of you can sue (take them to court) and have a chance at getting them to pay for you damages.

(EDIT: Might want to move this topic to "On the Road"...)
