The State Can Reimburse For a Flat But It’s a Pain In The Pothole
There is a way to be reimbursed by the state of NJ for a flat tire or damage to your car caused by a pothole.
This sounds amazing and all but honestly is seems next to impossible to actually get them to cut a check. The odds are 8 to 1,280 claims (at least that's the numbers from last year) however, it could be worth a try.
No one likes dealing with potholes, they legit will have you turn down your radio, humble yourself and pray to the lord you didn't just get a flat in these uncomfortably cold temperatures.
If you do end up having to deal with a flat or damage it's of course going to cost you. It might be a quick fix like a patch or you might even have to buy a whole new tire.
If you've made it this far into it here's what you have to do to be reimbursed ... and by the way it's a total pain in the a** and you have to complete the process within 90 days.
“The claimant would have to demonstrate that we were aware of the pothole and had more than sufficient time and resources to repair (it), yet failed to make the repair,” said Jennifer Sciortino, a treasury department spokeswoman via patch.com.
