Every year, at nearly the exact location, these “potholes” (sink holes really) appear near our house. They are 10 to 15 feet deep and sometimes as much as 30 feet wide. In other words they’re extremely dangerous. Yet every year the local government does some sort of temporary repair to get them through another year. This temporary repair generally takes one to two months to complete.
The problem is that they built this road on a wash. So when the monsoons come the foundation which these roads are built on are washed away and they begin to collapse.
