JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- If you want to get to the Cherrywood subdivision, you have to get through an obstacle course first.

"Some cars weave in and and out so fast. It's just ridiculous now," Danielle Fix said.

According to neighbors, the potholes on Bell Tel Way have been there for months. Now, they've gotten so big, cones can fit easily inside them and cars don't stand a chance.

Chris Veltri tells us he has to get new tires about every six months, and Danielle Fix has to pay $62 a pop every time one of her rims dents.

'They filled it in temporarily with dirt, but as soon as it rains, it's back to the way it was again," Veltri explained.

We did some digging and found out Bell Tel is privately owned. Neighbors were told the businesses along the road are responsible for repairs, so we asked them. The Duval Charter School at Arlington claims it doesn't fall on them, but on the Cherrywood Neighborhood Association.

Fix says she doesn't care who does what, as long as something is done and she can stay out of the auto repair shop.

'I would love for them to just repave the road. There's nothing more I can do or wish upon it," she said.

We reached out to the Cherrywood Neighborhood Association. They tell us they need help from businesses and other neighbors in the area to fix the problems.
