I think everyone knows a few areas where we have a pothole that we avoid so we don't smash our cars. I also hate man-hole covers, they usually act like a pothole and smash your car as well if you go over them, but that's a conversation for another article.

I feel like the local roads in our towns are usually where you find the most potholes. The local side roads can sometimes feel like you are driving "offroad". It's a hard task filling these bumps, but a needed service from our towns and the state. Like you probably do, I have a few areas in our town that have some of the worst potholes and in these areas I almost know by heart the proper way to navigate to avoid the smash, kinda like playing Frogger lol
