A pothole-stricken road in White Plains is causing concern for drivers and businesses on that street.
People in the area say the stretch of Virginia Road in North Castle, from the railroad tracks to the Bronx River Parkway, has been dangerous ever since they can remember.
Viola Abdullahu, who works at KBS Kitchen, says she must drive that part of the road every day on her way to work. She says customers also complain about it. 
She says the potholes often force drivers onto the other side of the road into oncoming traffic.  
"It is dangerous because you literally have to go on the other lane to skip them. God forbid some other car comes from the other lane in a speed that is maybe not controllable at the moment. It can cause a bad accident. And it's like life," she says. 
The deputy commissioner for Public Works for Westchester County says the county performs maintenance on the road east and west of this section in question, but not between the Bronx River Parkway and the Washington Monument. The department says that’s up to the MTA. The MTA says it is not their section of the road.
