Pothole season in full effect; help us find the worst roads

 'Tis the season for potholes. Submit your photos and videos to FOX 2 and help us find the worst stretches around metro Detroit.

Potholes damaging cars and slowing traffic - it doesn't matter where you drive they aren't hard to spot.

Crews are busy at work patching the potholes, but the fixes usually don't last too long.

FOX 2 set out to find the worst roads in Metro Detroit - but where to start was the question.

We want to know where the worst roads are, send your photos and videos to us on Facebook or email them to theFox2newsdesk@foxtv.com

In the meantime, commuters like Phil Talbert are fed up.

"The roads are bad," Talbert said. "There are potholes and water mains breaking everywhere. We try to avoid them and we don't have an option."

There is a ballot proposal in Lansing to increase the sales tax to fix the roads.

"I don't know if that's such a good idea," Talbert said, adding that Macomb and Oakland counties aren't as bad as Wayne.

Not everyone would agree - including Jason Dowda from Sterling Heights.

"They are crazy," he said. "Even one of our tires, we had to get it fixed and pay money for it."

In Macomb and Oakland counties, road patching crew were hard at work Thursday.

"It's not a permanent fix," one of the workers said. "We need more funding and stuff to fix the roads right."
