Report that pothole or crack now!

Call: 3-1-1 or 613-580-2400 (24 hours)
Every year our roads develop a new crew of potholes and cracks large enough to swallow your front wheel or give you a flat tire. Every year a few sewer grates get put in the wrong way, sand and gravel gets spilled on roads, bottles and broken glass appear. But if you report these cycling hazards to the proper authority they'll get fixed before you or someone else loses some skin or breaks some bones. Consider putting the numbers for where you travel most frequently in your cell phone so you can call in a problem as soon as you see it.
