WASHINGTON (WUSA9)--Pyle Vincent has nominated Van Buren Street in Northwest Washington as our Pothole Alert of the Day.

More specifically-- the 800 block of Van Buren near Georgia Avenue. And sure enough our Pothole Patrol Team had no problem finding two cavernous pits, crumbled asphalt and all. We also spotted cars hitting the potholes at pretty good clips, which is never good for tires or front end alignments.

WUSA9 has reported this location to the District Department of Transportation. DDOT promises to fill potholes within three business days. They are even working Saturdays to live up to this pledge.
