Tire damage on Chamblee Dunwoody Road - Steel Plate and Spikes the cause?
It looks as if a steel plate on Chamblee Dunwoody Rd caused tire damage to a few cars but was the city notified of the issue so we could repair it in a timely manner? No matter if this was a DeKalb water plate or not, the city is responsible for road safety. I couldn't find any notice given on the See Click Fix system but the story says that a resident called it in.
Safety is our top priority and these types of issues usually get corrected quickly. I trust if the City is a fault and was notified, that this was probably an isolated issue that was not entered into our See Click Fix system. I also fully trust that the location is now in good order and that our insurance company will properly handle any claims submitted.
Future work orders and corrective repair requests can be made easily by residents on the See Click Fix system and I fully encourage its use for road repair, sign replacements, traffic signals, code enforcement and right of way maintenance. There are even apps available for your phone to submit photos and GIS information of the issue.
