Bumpy roads across the city of Birmingham has drivers complaining about damage to tires and alignment.

One area that has seen the rough roads is along Oporto Madrid Boulevard heading west from Crestwood.

"It's just a lot of areas that need to be replaced or fixed. Definitely repaving this road would be good for us and all the drivers, as you see. It stays busy all day," Robinson says.
