After the winter we’ve had this year, it is inevitable that the roads are going to be in pretty rough shape. Now that the snow has melted, people are plagued by the many potholes left behind on the roads, and our poor vehicles are feeling the worst of it.
A pothole in St. John’s, Newfoundland might take the cake for the worst pothole yet. Now, we aren’t talking about a little bump in the road. No, this pothole is so huge it had to be surrounded with police tape and pylons. It is at least four-feet deep and large enough to destroy any car that drove over it.
Telegram reporter James McLeod demonstrates how big the pothole actually is in a YouTube video posted on Wednesday where he drops a banana into it.
Using the banana for scale so that viewers can see just how far down the pothole reaches into the earth, McLeod says, “it’s a really deep pothole.” Pothole? More like a sinkhole!
