After returning to Santa Clara County from Berkeley recently, I was shocked at Intrastate 880.
I was driving slowly in the right lane when I hit a long stretch of deep peaks on the road, couldn’t move, heard funny noises. Then – Metal. I pulled to one side, and my tire ran out, exploding all over the road. I had several other tires in front of me in the same condition.
After hearing many stories from friends who had similar experiences, I filed a complaint with Calterans.
Result: Complaint rejected. Appeal rejected. No reason given. The Coulters told me I would have to go to small claims court and I would probably lose because no government complaints, including mine, had been published.
A: Caltrans receives 4,000 claims annually for vehicle damages of less than 10,000, but only 1 in 10 is maintained. You can file a second claim or contact your auto insurance agent, who can help you with the claim process. If multiple complaints have been lodged with Coltrane on this part of the road, your claim is more likely to be accepted.
Damage claims can be filed that you believe were caused by Caltron’s action or inactivity. On average, people in Calif., California pay $ 762 per year for damage caused by bad roads. But in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, according to the AAA, the cost of repairing faulty roads is high, at more than ہزار 1,000 a year.
Q: Thank you, Mr. Roadshow. I saw your answer on what to do with the leftover paper BART ticket. Shortly after that I packed my money back (at the end of a few centuries, I doubt it). I received a check for کل 37 from BART today. They even included three low-cost tickets (5 2.05 for all three).
A: BART has stopped selling paper tickets from its vending machines. Rental doors still accept paper tickets that are loaded with funds. Using cash on an adfair machine located in a paid area of each station, passengers will be able to significantly increase their paper tickets to get out of the station.
The second option is return. BART will refund paper tickets with a balance of more than 1.
A station agent can help process a refund request. You will fill out a form and provide the agent with an unused ticket for which you want a refund. The agent will send the form and ticket to BART. You will receive a refund check, which may take 4-6 weeks to process.
