BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents say the roads in their borough are filled with potholes and need to be repaired, despite efforts from the Department of Transportation.

Drivers and cyclists say they haven't seen much improvement on many roads and are concerned for their safety. Others complained driving over potholes was doing extra damage to their cars.

The Department of Transportation says it repaired around 23,500 in Brooklyn from July 2012 through January. Residents can report potholes by calling 311 or filling out a form on the Department of Transportation's website.
