Los Angeles city leaders have spent months discussing the best strategy for assessing the condition of thousands of miles of broken and buckled sidewalks. With the total cost of repairs expected to reach $1.5 billion, officials warn an exhaustive survey of the damage could take three years to complete and cost more than $10 million.

Readers can submit reports to the Times' own database of damaged sidewalks by snapping a picture and uploading it to our online form, sending an email to latimessidewalks@gmail.com with the photo as an attachment, or tweeting a photo with the address using the hashtag #lasidewalks.

If you send an email, please let us know the approximate address of the damage in the subject line, and describe the problem in the body of the message.


Broken Sidewalk/ People getting injured

23:46 Oct 4 2012 Cattaraugaus Ave. Between Shenandoah and Reynier, in front the apartment complex

Sidewalk is buckled and slightly uplifted creating a major hazard for the hundreds of kids that walk home from Hamilton High School, especially the kids that use skateboards as a mode of transportation. I have personally witnessed about 5 people trip and injure themselves while on this sidewalk in the last 2 weeks alone. 2 of them were using skateboards.
