Potholes are a common problem on roads all across the country, but they can be a particularly big problem in areas that experience a lot of snow and precipitation during the winter. This is due to the fact that potholes are formed by water and snow leaking under the surface of the road, expanding the ground, and finally causing a the ground to sink once the cold weather subsides and the precipitation evaporates. The responsible municipal authorities must monitor for the presence of potholes and take action to repair them timely when they develop. Left unaddressed, potholes can become increasingly severe and therefore more likely to cause harm.
