The lakeshore between mimico and browns line is terrible, avoid at all costs.

I wish Ottawa has these publicized pothole blitz. The Airport Parkway has gotten so bad that I've seen cars pulled over on the shoulder due to damaged tires on a daily basis now. Driving down that stretch of road (which I do twice a day or more) is like trying to dodge mines in a minefield

I was on the Gardiner Monday. Still pretty bad approaching Jarvis EB. Woke me up for sure.

You guys don't know potholes until you've driven down Main street Hamlton, in front of McMaster University.

I've driven on dirt roads that are smoother.

I think contractors are using substandard materials... I saw potholes heading south along Warden south of the 401 before Eglington. The entire stretch of Warden from St. Clair to Steeles was just repaved not more than two years ago!

This year seems exceptionally worse. Was driving north on Leslie past 16th ave, felt like I was off-roading. 404 is in bad shape too ... big potholes everywhere.

The potholes are increasing and the old ones are getting huge!

When are they planning to fix the roads?

After the weather stabilizes?

When cyclists start paying for licensing, lol. Kidding. Assuming spring when the weather is more consistent. Or maybe never and this is just a tactic being deployed by the city to encourage commuters to take transit.

Do not drive north on Kennedy and Finch. Unless you got a trail raited SUV, you'll definitely destroy something in your car.

I don't notice any difference. 401, gardiner still have a lot of them. It's like I have already memorized on which part I am going to encounter one. :facepalm:
