Bill proposed to prevent cities from being responsible for pothole damage

A bill was recently proposed in the Wisconsin legislature that would prevent drivers from filing claims against cities for damage that their cars may incur because of potholes.

Under current law, drivers can claim up to $50,000 in damages if they are involved in an accident caused by known potholes. Supporters of the bill that would eliminate this possibility for drivers say that the money that cities and towns would save by not having claims made against them would go towards road repairs.

Not everyone is happy about the bill. According to Barb West, a risk manager in Brown County, the bill would only allow cities to become negligent in their repairing of roads.
