Insurance company helping Tucson handle pot-holes

Posted: Updated:

The roads in the city are about to get a lot smoother.  Thanks to the Hartford Financial Services Group.

The auto insurance provider has teamed up with the City of Tucson to fill pot-holes!  They're going to donate funds to buy the materials crews need to smooth out the streets for a week. Labor is also included in that cost.

A Hartford spokesman says the company understands everyone is feeling the pinch due to the economy-- so it wanted to pitch in, "People are passionate about pot-holes and we are an auto insurance company and if there's a way for us to make the drive smoother we believe it will be safer and that helps everybody."

The Hartford launched the pot-hole patrol program in Tucson last October.
