Message from State representative Dan Carter:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

After a winter marked by mass amounts of ice and snow, potholes are sinking in all over our district.

Municipal authorities of Bethel, Danbury, Newtown and Redding are working hard to fill these craters, but ask residents for their help in locating them all. If you encounter a pothole, please report it to your town:

*When reporting a pothole, please provide the street name.

In the meantime, the city of Danbury offers the following driving tips in light of recent road conditions:

  • Leave plenty of room in front of your vehicle so you can avoid potholes without getting into an accident.
  • If you can’t avoid a pothole, slow down before you hit it. But don’t brake directly over a pothole, which can actually cause more damage.
  • When driving over the pothole, hold the steering wheel firmly to avoid losing control.
  • Use caution when driving over a puddle of water because it might be a particularly deep pothole in hiding.

As always, if you have questions or concerns about state government please do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience at: 1-800-842-1423 or Dan.Carter@housegop.ct.gov

Best Regards,

Dan Carter
