Potholes that remain unrepaired cause premature damage to all vehicles that travel in the city of Nelson. Having a small notebook and pencil mounted on the dash in all city vehicles would provide a method of recording these safety issues seen by city employees who could hand them in at the end of daily shifts so supervisors could direct repair action. Ignoring complaints is not a way to protect steering parts of vehicles and lessen liability.
