I always stay in the passing lane when traveling on 401. The middle lane is full of potholes.

Add to the list Finch west of Leslie. They repaved that section last summer but it's full of potholes and cracks now, not even avoidable. Worse for those heading east though.

Drive thru there every fricking day. If you are on the left lane, my advise, keep close to right as much as possible.

Or simply just drive as SLOOOOOOOOW as possible to minimize the pump

Friday the 13th.. a night of horror.. a night for potholes

On University Ave southbound near Wellington St, left lane. My fault for going 60km/h and being boxed in, so I drove right over it. The car bounced hard and I didn't think much of it at the time. The next morning I see this:



$320 for a new Dunlop Wintersport 3D at Tires23.. thank god they had it in stock and replaced it within an hour.

Be careful out there! If you have 40 series tires, drive as if your tires are made of glass.. slow down, don't get boxed in, evade and use your foglights at night.

OMG Steeles was SO BAD between Victoria Park and Kennedy (heading east)

You WILL hit something regardless of which lane you are in.

Don't feel so bad. For those of you who remember, I bent a "not-even-a-day-old" rim on a pothole last spring, then another 2 a couple weeks after that.

Driving home from downtown earlier this morning, going north on DVP just past York Mills on the far left passing lane...AVOID! Im not sure what i hit, but it sounded pretty bad to me, although the car drove fine and when i got home i inspected all the tires and they seemed to be fine.

If you're driving north on the DVP between York Mills and Shepperd, avoid the far left passing lane at all cost.
