You're driving along, just mind your own business, running errands, grabbing food, and you hit something. Something that dips your car down, and throws it back up real quick.

Sometimes your car makes a sound of discomfort, while other times the sound is probably coming from you.

We call these potholes in Michigan.

Once you've passed the bridge, you'd better grab onto something, and slow down. Otherwise, you'll be cringing the rest of the way to Okemos.

Above is the roadway from 2019, but I can't imagine the condition has improved all too much.

The other day, I was on my way to Okemos and hit a pothole so bad, I thought I'd actually hit a person at first.

On my way back from Okemos, there was a cop car sitting there, actually blocking off the pothole in that area.
