I hate Pot holes!!!

Damn, I was so pissed tonight. On the way to dinner tonight with my girlfriend it was hard to see and was raining. Out of the corner of my eye I saw it, a huge pot hole. With no time to react I hit it and it felt like I left my front suspension behind. I was preparing for the worst but when I got out there was a little chip on the wheel and that was it. I was really expecting a bent rim, thats how hard it felt when I hit. But the thing was were the chip was it was towards the center of one of the spokes, so that pot hole was deep. Sorry I had to vent, It just that PA roads are shit and I wish they would friggin fix the damn roads. Anyone else hate the roads were they live?

Hah!! I used to hate the roads around Doylestown... I actually had a very similar experience to yours on Edison-Furlong road a couple years ago. I actually killed the tire! Thankfully no other damage to the old car. Now I actually wish I had those roads back. I was actually afraid to buy the new car here in Jersey because now instead of just shit roads, they're 4 lanes of shit roads! And crappy drivers.... I miss PA!

Man that must have been one heck of a pot hole. Did you report to your DOT? If not you should.

Roads here in Baltimore suck too. Must be a combination of weather and poor funding. There certainly isn't as many shitty roads around Houston.

Man at least they bother to fix the roads up fairly quickly in North America not like South Africa where they couldn't give a shit.
