A view of potholes

The number of potholes on roadways in the St. John’s area is a hot topic of discussion for motorists and pedestrians alike. The high amount of rain in recent days has only increased the problem. From radio morning and open line shows, to comments on Twitter and to The Telegram’s website, people are frustrated with the state of the roadways and the potential damage to vehicles that hitting potholes can cause, or the uncomfortable splash of cold, dirty water on an unsuspecting pedestrian. On Wednesday, March 6, 2013, Telegram photographer Keith Gosse took The Telegram’s GoPro camera for a little ride along as he travelled to his photo assignments.

    It is not the weather with snow, rain, ice, and temperature changes causing this. It is the poor street management provided by the City of St. John's. There are other parts in the world with very similar weather but well maintained roads and therefore very little pothole will show up in the end of winter. Every individual driver, especially here around St. John’s, is affected by this neglect by paying so much more for repairs and vehicle up keeping. Why is the major with his staff neglecting this topic? I just wonder if they are proud for what they do when they driver around pothole alley – St. John’s, Nfld?
