Before the Cleveland Hts. Police drive their new cars they must know that the South Taylor Rd. project need to be taken care of .I discovered there were a few neighbors within our block had to have identical car repairs,in some cases like myself my husband's Four Runner needed the same repair mutiple times our insurance eventually deemed it a total loss,my car was a Saturn it had less than 90,000 miles on it ,driving on this street caused the air bags to malfunction from hitting one of many pits in the road,since the Saturn is no longer being made,my car was a total loss also forcing us buy replacment cars and pick up car notes we were not finanicially prepared to embrace.Have a great day!
