Reviving thread for the return of pothole season...

City steps up effort to repair potholes
After a prolonged stretch of frigid temperatures in Toronto, the weather is getting milder. And with the snow melting, the city is stepping up its efforts to repair the emerging potholes.

Is Apple repairing roads with iPhones now?
After 2 years of updates the roads will be slower than a Corolla in the left lane.

Yup. I had to get my tire replaced due to a sidewall bubble cause of these F***kin potholes. The city should pay for it!

We used to joke back in Winnipeg that the roads are better in winter because the snow fills up the pot holes.

This happens everywhere. It's worse with places with lots of freezing and thawing and it's worse in areas with lots of traffic. Toronto has both.

BTW, when I lived in Montreal, it was actually worse there year round, but admittedly, that was a long time ago. I don't know if it's as bad now.
Surprising that it has improved slightly over the past 5years. Highways are better for sure. Still pretty bad though.

Toronto is worse since Tory and his cronies are ruling. He runs the city like a small town joe. It's the main street mentality.

Welcome to the year 2000 John.

Considering the same contractors charge the City 100k for a stair case, you can imagine how much they charge for fixing the roads.
Justin Trudeau - bankrupting Canada since 2015. And M103 my ass.

Yeah the issue with the roads in Canada in general is because of the winters, thats why the roads are better in hotter countries.

Well I still see people driving their Porsche 911's in the winter. Probably can't afford a winter car.
You do realize run of the mill 911's are marketed as a daily driver for all seasons right?
