Welcome to the Halifax Potholes advisory site
Tired of constantly avoiding potholes in Halifax? I know I am. Even more, I find myself getting increasingly annoyed with the fact that when I avoid one pothole (or a humongous crater) I end up driving over one that was much larger than the one I tried to avoid. You know how I feel, don’t you?
Let’s face it, other than the potential for causing serious injury, potholes are a darn nuisance for many reasons. To me, the most annoying thing about potholes in and around Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) is the costly damages they can do to our vehicles. I know that annoying feeling because I’ve already been there.
Mechanics, tire shops and I bet lawyers in Halifax, NS must love potholes and to be honest with you, I can’t blame them. Potholes can do thousands of dollars worth of damage to any size vehicle. Some of the most typical damages caused by potholes are to your tires, rims, struts, muffler and alignment system. Potholes can also cause damages due to fluid leakage and the formation of rust around the damaged areas. Like I’ve already mentioned, mechanics, tire shops and lawyers must love potholes.
Obviously, HRM councilors must be aware of the conditions of the roads in HRM, but are they doing enough to ensure that our roads are safe enough to travel on by repairing these potholes in a timely fashion?
So what can we do about the pothole situation in HRM? Well we can start by spreading the word about this site. Why? Because it’s the place where you can alert your fellow drivers by reporting a pothole or even submitting a photo of a pothole you find while in your travels.
I hope you find this site useful and we encourage you to check back daily for updated reports.
