Last year my husband had to swerve over to avoid a "crotch rocket" flying up behind us in our lane. Two tires (still on the edge of the road) hit a 17 inch deep crevasse where the asphalt had eroded away at the edge. I work for the City of Henderson. We filed pictures, estimates from the tire shop (two tires had busted belts and one rim was dented) to the City. Result: Thank you for reporting the problem. No damages can be covered because the City was unaware the problem existed. So basically we "saved" the next victim but we were out $750 to repair our car.

By the way, they simply cold-patched the hole and the edges are still eroding.
