    I can't see any pot holes in my drive, the snow is covering them :D

    On Crookston road you'd need to spend half a day filling the craters before they could even be called pot holes.

    So you're telling me when they make roads, they are not snow proof? How does fluffy snow cause pot holes? yet to see roads in West London with pot holes caused by the cold weather.

    Clearly water gets into a crack freezes, expands and over a number of days,weeks ect will cause it to crack and make a whole... basic science?

    tiny cracks appear in worn road, water gets in, it freezes, when water freezes it expands making the tiny gap bigger. When a lorry then drives over the big crack it knocks it free from the rest of the tarmac. More water gets in freezes makes the hole even bigger and so is the cycle of worn roads.

    The snow melts to water

    The water gets into the cracks in the road

    The water freezes and expands

    The newly expanded ice pushes up the road surface (water expands when frozen)

    Cars drive over the loosened surface and takes off the surface

    Repeat last above point(s) until you end up bending your alloy.
