potholes

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — It's prime pothole development season. In winter and early spring when temperatures change frequently, snow and ice can melt and seep into the pavement. Then, when the temperature drops again, the water refreezes and expands, cracking the road and opening up a pothole.

According to a recent study by LendingTree-affiliate QuoteWizard, Michigan has the worst potholes in the nation, but New Jersey and New York aren't far behind. New Jersey was ranked seventh in the study and New York came in tenth, based on Google search statistics. Pollsters said Delaware, Nebraska, and Wyoming have the fewest potholes.
