It's May and we've still got pothole problems in Rockford.

Doesn't seem like it's much better anywhere else in Illinois when it comes to those gigantic craters as well.

That's why when I saw this on Reddit, I couldn't help but laugh and be a bit sad at the same time too.


You can't disagree with the shape, this pothole looks like nearly an exact replica of the state of Illinois.

These massive holes in the earth have created quite a stir in the Rockford area this year. Tires have been blown, alignments have been jacked up, and believe it or not, I know of someone who actually rolled an ankle stepping into a pothole.

Yet some of the things still remain. What did a pothole do to you or your vehicle this year? Let us know.
