VIDEO: Potholes taking out tires one by one in the Lower Mainland

A Surrey roadway has caused quite the inconvenience for dozens of drivers now that the snow’s melted



Potholes are taking out car tires left and right now that the snow has hopefully permanently left the Lower Mainland.

A rather unexpectedly long winter has left behind huge holes in the road, and the jolt of hitting one often coming as a surprise to drivers.

One particular pothole in Surrey has damaged dozens of cars, at one point causing nine drivers to pull over for do-it-yourself tire changes.

But at least, writes one B.C. resident, it “slows down the speeders.”
