Probably one of the less pleasant aspects of living in Montreal this time of year is dealing with its roads. Whether you drive, bike, walk or take the bus; they are pretty much always a source of frustration due to their deplorable condition this time of year. The thawing season causes great potholes, sinkholes and cracks big enough to cause serious damage to appear like magic. Every year citizens complain loudly and forcefully about this unacceptable state of affairs. Montrealers pay enough in taxes to be have reliable roads but, alas, such is not the case. There really isn't much you can do about it other than to keep vigilant and contact your local provincial and federal government representative to complain. We deserve better!
