Spring is here. Potholes are growing everywhere.
The winter was tough -- much colder than usual and far more snow. Now that winter is fading, the cold is easing and the snow melting, potholes are appearing everywhere. The problem is so severe and so wide spread that it is a nationwide story.
These holes in the pavement are wide, long and deep. On the good side, the large sizes make many of these monster hard to miss. On the bad side, hit one at full tilt and a tire can be blown or a rim destroyed.
In London, Ontario, the city is busy filling the holes with a cold, asphalt mix but the cold nights is making the patches pop free.
