In a public relations stunt by a local taxi firm, a car appears to have fallen into a monster-sized pothole in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The PR campaign is to advertise a new Canadian iPhone app called 'Pothole Season' where you can find out where all the major potholes might be, so you can avoid them and save damaging your car’s suspension.
It is a well-known fact that the roads in Montreal are riddled with potholes – and some of the real ones could be big enough to damage your car. So this iPhone app may prove to be very popular. You can get to see a Google map of the potholes at Pothole Season.
Most Canadian winters are usually quite severe, and Quebec roads get a severe beating from the snow and ice. So, in the spring, a favorite Canadian pastime is to count how many new potholes have appeared over the winter and are visible when the snow melts.
