Pothole Report



Holy crappy toronto road condition... maybe no more snow and many construction are starting again?

A lot of potholes and STEEL BOARDS laying on the road (over ONE INCH in height) on Finch, between Willowdale and Yonge travelling West...

I was going 60 and those boards really tested my stopping power... almost jumped into the air...

want more report on bad road...

Finch going west right before Midland, there's a HUGE one in the passing lane about 2-3 inches deep. Luckily I hit it when I still had my winters on.

Finch going east there are quite a few in the passing lane as well.

i hate all the potholes and raised speed bump like blemishes in the road around the Black Creek / HWY 400 exit on 401 West. There's even more if you go a little further to the Weston Rd. exit too.

that stretch of road always scares the shit out of me!
