Crossing the center line to avoid a pothole is something that IDIOTS do. Getting into a head on collision to avoid a pot hole is something that IDIOTS do. Seems like a lot of motorists are joining this club. I'd call them Drivers but they can't....

While I agree with everything Mundus said above...I would like to add that a city ignoring potholes and putting the public in danger is also something IDIOTS do.
