Potholes are holes in the road that can vary in size and shape. They are caused by the expansion and contraction of ground water. Because of this the road then weakens and when traffic drives over it, the road starts to crack and break.
Potholes are most common on the roads during winter and spring. In the colder months you may find that they are left un-repaired for longer periods of time, so it is important to be more cautious during these times.
