Perhaps people should safely start taking and posting pics of all of these roads not only to show everyone how bad these roads are but also for possible liability issues for repairs to their vehicles, potential accidents as a result of these conditions, and even resulting injuries that may be involved. And, included with the pic, the date that you reported it to the City, Town, or whoever has jurisdiction over maintaining that road....just my personal opinion...

They're all over the place Year-round it's a joke the amount of money we pay for taxes As New Yorkers
