A governmental entity is liable for a dangerous condition of its property only if it has actual or constructive notice of the condition and doesn’t fix it.  The entity has constructive notice of a dangerous condition only if (1) the dangerous condition existed for a sufficient period of time before the plaintiff’s injury, and (2) it was sufficiently obvious that the entity acted negligently in not discovering and repairing it. This decision holds that a 1.75 inch divot out of the pavement in an alley is not an obviously dangerous condition sufficient to give constructive notice to the governmental entity.  While such a divot might be an obvious danger on a sidewalk, it is not in an alley which is not intended primarily for pedestrian traffic.
