What I’d really like to know is why one pothole is fixed when just two feet further down the road is another twice as big and deep that gets ignored? Is there a criteria requiring a certain depth, width and overall danger rating?
Do they have to be within a prescribed catchment area? Should motorists flag them? Spray paint flowers around them? Better yet, draw arrows?
I know infrastructure is costly to maintain. Part of the problem lies in the reported issues with the improper mix being used on roadways that is now crumbling and not living up to expectations.
I do not fault the individuals who are trying to keep up with road repair, although I would ask a warning sign be placed a little further back so people have a bit more opportunity to change lanes rather than have a “Holy S***” moment.
All in all, I am sure I will be poorer once I bring my car in for servicing this spring. I just hope it’s a one-time deal, this year. Perhaps my next vehicle should be a hovercraft?
