TODAY IS POTHOLE DAY
Is there anything more annoying than driving down the road on a nice sunny day and having to dodge potholes? Absolutely, and that would be driving in the pouring rain trying to avoid potholes while you can barely see past the hood of your car.
Potholes are a constant annoyance to motorists everywhere, but they’ve existed since the very earliest roads around, and it’s from those times they take their names. Pothole Day is your opportunity to do something about those potholes, and maybe learn something about them in the process.
