ATLANTA -- It cost Walter Hicks a tire, but city crews were quick to fix a problem pothole on Central Avenue downtown.

Hicks uses Central Avenue to avoid traffic on the downtown connector.

"I changed lanes at the wrong time, and my tire went right through the center of it," said Hicks.

Hicks called Commuter Dude, who contacted the city of Atlanta. That very day, a crew patched the hole with fresh asphalt.

"That's the first time I've called the Commuter Dude," said Hicks. "I was very impressed."
