The pavement starts separating and the cars cant take the holes, said Paul Ferrel, owner of Ferrels Garage on University Avenue.
Viewers reported numerous potholes on East Main Street between Goodman Street and Culver Road, North Winton Road between Blossom Road and Atlantic Avenue and sections of Ridgeway Avenue, among many others areas.

The early start to winter combined with unseasonably warm temperatures during the past week is blamed for worsening potholes, according to 13WHAM Chief Meteorologist Glenn Johnson.
