I hate potholes and it seems I’m surrounded by them. My shop is only 6 miles from my house but the entire street it’s on is loaded with potholes. It feels like I’m dodging land mines as I drive to work. The street I live on was the same way until recently and the 2 routes from my house to anywhere else either has speed bumps or potholes. My poor little car gets no relief from it.  

How are the roads in your area?

    • By my house they aren’t too bad as last year they did construction on my street....but there are bad areas around the city that can really use some work.

    • oh geez potholes galore by my sister’s house! every time i drive to or from her house i get so frustrated trying to dodge the darned potholes.  its a major boulevard that you would think the city would maintain better, but its been that way for so long. the last few times i started driving out of my way to avoid that main street, but then it takes up so much more time.  just can’t win.  but at least i have an alternate route, sounds like yours is the only route and can’t be avoided!

    • The streets by our house are good, I know theres potholes In other areas, but I always see them trying to fix those when they do see some or get reported by someone.

    • Britain’s hard(ish) winter has caused hundreds of potholes in my locality of North London as well as in UK and Europe generally. In Germany one town got people to sponsor the repair of potholes in return for a commoration plaque! Trouble is I’m not exactly where the plaque is placed - could be a bit tricky if it’s on the pothole itself!

    • The city I live in takes great care of the streets, but living in the DFW Metroplex- there are plenty of potholes to steer around like land mines.

    • Not too many on my street, but between earthquakes and rain new ones pop up all over the place.
